Kosciusko County Census Data

Kosciusko County was organized in April, 1836. Prior to this most of the land was part of a large Cass County, with a tiny sliver of Turkey Creek and Tippecanoe Townships part of a larger Allen County. Complete Census Transcriptions are currently on line for both 1840, 1850, 1860 and 1870, each with an everyname index. Also available are the Mortality Schedules for 1850 and 1860. The LDS now has the complete 1880 on-line at familysearch.org.
