1856
1856 Iowa State Census
Census Schedule of Raglan Township, Harrison County, Iowa

Key per column:
1. Dwelling #
2. Family #

5. Sex
6. Color
7. Married
8. Widowed
9. Years resident in the State

Note: Other facts on Census that are not noted here in regards to Voter, Militia, Alien, Health
& Farm Items sold.

Note: The Census taker did not record the Dwelling & Family numbers accurately, for the most
part they are all recorded with the numeral 1.

Note: Assume there are errors in this transcription. The Census was extremely difficult to read
because of the handwriting, spelling and age. I have made every effort to transcribe it with as
much accuracy as possible. I would appreciate any input on errors that may be found.
