Census Resources


While transcribing the census, I noticed that some of the names were difficult to read at times.  When there was a question in my mind as to the actual spelling, I noted this with a "?".  There also seems to be obvious spelling errors, but I tried to keep true to the census taker's records.  In those days, many words were spelled phonetically.  Once you've located your ancestor in the pages below, please check the actual census image to verify this transcription.

Thank you for understanding!
