Census Year: 1856
Microfilm Number: HQ# V221-9, FHL# 1021292
State: Iowa
County: Carroll
Township: Newton
Town:
Enumerator: [unknown]
Enumeration Date: [unknown]

** Extended 1856 Census Transcription**
The entire 1856 census has been transcribed, including farm statistics. Caveat: The
farm statistics page of the 1856 State of Iowa census is often mis-matched with the
standard census page.

Transcriber's Notes:
I have transcribed the farm information where the lines appeared to coincide with the
family information. Some lines on the pages of the book did not align properly,
therefore I did not include the information.

No line numbers appear on the original census. Line numbers have been assigned to
indicate the enumeration order.
