1830 Federal Census

transcribed by Tia and proof-read by Jeannie and typed by Dianna Williams and submitted by all

Thanks from the bottom of my heart to Tia and Jeannie for transcribing and proof-reading,  my daugher and my 2 grandchildren for assisting me, and researchers that did the 'final check on the site' and for all of them to give me the courage and strength to finish.

In the 1830 Federal census, the  townships were unknown to the census taker, , William Turney.  The first page reads:

We hereby certified that a correct coppy of the above schedule signed by the William F. Turney has set up at two of the most public places within the division open to the inspection of places within division open to the inspection of all concered.

The grand total was 2,562 people, of which includes the 6 Slaves and Free Blacks. On the front and back pages, 7 were written but crossed out and replaced by a '6'.

The following people had Slaves and/or Free Black people in their house hold.

  1. Leech, Samuel
    1 female slave age between 10-24 yrs.
  2. Funkenhouser, John
    2 females slaves ages between 24-36 yrs.
    2 free males ages under 10 yrs.
  3. Goodin, John
    1 black free female age between 36-55

The age classification columns (one for Males and one for Females) are as follows:

  1. Under 5 years
  2. 5 - 10 years
  3. 10 - 15 years
  4. 15 -20 years
  5. 20 - 30 years
  6. 30 - 40 years
  7. 40 - 50 years
  8. 50 - 60 years
  9. 60 - 70 years
  10. 70 -80 years
  11. 80 - 90 years
  12. 90 - 100 years

A census like this is hard to proofread. I had 2 people helping me with this census and 'sometimes' each saw a differnt name or letter.

You can review all 15 pages per file or indexed. I do not have the links completed on the indexes but will get to them. I thought it was more important for you to see the files than to wait another week or so to link them.
