NOTES:
x = this town was part of Cazenovia (1800) or Cazenovia and Smithfield (1810 and 1820).
* = larger Town of Cazenovia
** = calculated from the totals of the four towns then in Chenango County but which were set of as Madison County in 1806.
( n ) indicate that I have not confirmed this number for the 1800-1855 censuses
        I check all the town numbers against the enumeration lists - may be different than official numbers.
        The 1825, 1835, 1845 State Population Schedules and the 1890 Federal Population Schedules are lost and cannot be checked.

Cazenovia Town and Village, when enumerated seperately are combined
Madison County up to 1855 is taken from French 1860:151
Madison County for 1960 from Thompson 1966:510
Cazenovia 1870 to 1940 and Madison Co. 1860 to 1940 from list compiled by John B. Nichols.
