The 1866 Alabama State census was taken after the Civil War, and was the first census to list Black heads of households. There was three Schedules in this census, the first Sch. listed the White Population, the Second Sch. listed the Black Population, and the Three Sch. listed the White Population. All three of these Schedules listed the heads of households by name and listed the members of the house only using numbers in colums by sex and age (much in the fashion of the early 1800's census records). Only Schedule three was divided by Township and Range, there were a few Township & Ranges listed in the other two Sch.'s also.This census is important due to the fact that many of the people were left off the 1860 Federal census of Lawrence Co., Ala. It also helps to identify those that died or were killed during the War.
Note: People were not always listed on both schedules with their full names, some times it was initals.Also this census is some what hard to read on microfilm, so we did the best we could do. We listed people that were on on both census Schedules, if they were listed on one with full name that is whatt we listed for both. If not an all that was given was an inital, that is what we listed.
