The 1870 census contains eight townships. This transcription
was taken from a microfilmed copy of the original document. Due to the
handwriting and the quality of the microfilm, there are some instances
where I am not totally confident of my interpretation of the entries. In
these cases a question mark has been inserted. Many names were misspelled
on the original census, but no effort has been made to "modernize" spellings,
and an accurate reproduction of the entries has been attempted. If you
do not agree with the spelling of your ancestor's name, please do not ask
me to change it, for to do so would make the transcription inaccurate.
If you have questions regarding the information here please go to your
local genealogy library and view the original microfilm. Some of the data
in the original census has been omitted to reduce the labor of transcription
and the file size.
After locating the Index Number for a family name from
the Surnames Index, return to this page and select the appropriate Index
Number from the Township List below.
