Fayette County, Alabama
~ 1870 Census Index ~

Your corrections are welcomed!

The following index was compiled and generously contributed to this website by W.T. "Terry" Thornton.  The information below is based on his careful examination of the online census images.  Surnames, given names (or initials), ages, places of birth, and census image references have been included.  Given names that were abbreviated in the census record were changed to the full spellings in this index.

Remember, this is NOT an every-name index.  Entries in bold type indicate a head of household.  No additional members of that particular household with the same surname are listed in this index (see the images for a complete listing).  Entries in regular type indicate a member of a household with a surname different from the household head.  Where there are multiple such people in a household, only one was included in this index, usually the first listed or the eldest (see images for a complete listing).

Like most U.S. censuses, the 1870 enumeration of Fayette County is plagued by poor spelling and even worse penmanship.  Then again, legibility is often in the eye of the beholder.  For example, what may look like Thompston to a transcriber may clearly be seen as Thornton by a descendant.  But how many Thornton researchers will overlook this misguided interpretation of the surname?

The goal of this index is not to prove that census takers can't spell or that transcribers can't read.  Rather, it is to repair the most egregious mistakes of both.  Correcting your ancestor's name here — even if your interpretation is not universally accepted — should make it easier for other researchers to find him or her on the 1870 Fayette County census.

Please contact the Fayette County Coordinator with your comments and suggestions.

• Entries in RED are questionable; help is needed to identify the actual surnames.
  • Highlighted items have been changed from the original transcription (see Changes).
• A plus sign (+) indicates that a family enumeration continues on the next page.
• Two plus signs (++) indicate that a household entry continues on the second census page following (some sections are not in proper sequence).
• A minus sign (-) indicates that a household entry continues on the previous census page (again, some sections are not in order).
