This Census challenged the enumerators to collect 75 columns of information on each
household. But ONLY the names of the Heads of Household are cited. For each household, the number
of males and females for various age groups were noted. Also noted were the number os persons within
each household employed in specific professions. This census also sought to capture information on slaves
and free colored persons. This transcription for Kosciusko County only includes the columns that
included information. No slaves or free colored persons were enumerated in Kosciusko County. I've also
only included the professions that Kosciusko County people were employed in, nobody in Kosciusko County
was involved in Mining or the Navigation of Oceans. This Census did not capture the city, town or
townships the households lived in.
One column has been added to this census to improve the ability
to locate an individual, Line Number. Presented is an Index of Heads of Households that includes a clickable
link to the Census page that person is on. You can also browse each Census page.
