1870 CHRISTIAN COUNTY FEDERAL CENSUS
Transcribed by Josephine Dunne
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.
