Norton County Kansas
1895 Census

The census was transcribed by Walta Russ from the microfilm located at the Norton County Library in the genealogy room.   For copies of this information you can email Walta.  There will be a fee for research time and copies. 

The 1895 Ag Census is partially indexed and online at the Kansas State Historical Society website:
http://www.kshs.org/genealogists/census/kansas/census1895ks.htm#indexes.  The townships that are indexed here on the Norton Genealogy website are: Sand Creek, Lincoln, Rock Branch, Rockwell, Modell, Nobel, Orange, Leota, West Union, and Solomon.  For the other townships of the county check out the State Historical Society site linked above.

The Kansas State Board of Agriculture conducted a census of the state in 1895.  The census lists all members of household by name, including age, sex, race or color, and state or country of birth. Also listed: where from to Kansas (state or country) and military record (condition of discharge, state of enlistment, letter or name of company or command, number of regiment or other organization to which attached, arm of the service, and name of military prison if confined in one).  The Agricultural section lists such information as number of acres in farm, number of acres under cultivation, irrigation, fencing, machinery, crops planted, dairy products produced or made, livestock, orchards, number of dogs, and much more. 

These were all hand written and very hard to read.  There are questionable spellings along with names that can not be deciphered.  Walta has worked hard to transcribe them as accurately as possible and  transcribed them as they are in the census so be sure to check for alternative spellings.
