Abstracted by Cynthia Turk, proofread by Marianne Wiley. It has been pubished in part in "LakeLines," the newsletter of Lake County Genealogical Society.

This schedule asked many questions in addition to the regular population census, including the following headings: Name of Corporation, Company, or Individual, producing Articles to the Annual Value of $500; Name of Business, Manufacture, or Product; Capital invested in Real and Personal Estate in the Business; Raw Material used, including Fuel: Quantities, Kinds, Values; Kind of Motive power, machinery, structure, or resource.; Average number of hands employed- male, female; Wages (average monthly cost of male labor, female labor); Annual Product - Quantities, Kinds, Values. Only the first two columns are included below in this Abstract. The Townships in the Lake County portion of the film are in this order: Perry, Willoughby, Painesville, Kirtland, Madison, Leroy, Mentor, Concord.

By way of example, Thomas Wilder of Painesville was a plow maker. His investment was worth $2000 in 1850. In a year, he used 40 tons of iron worth $1200 and $800 worth of timbers. His factory was steam powered, and had three people employed at an average cost of $25.00 each per month. In the year 1849-1850 Wilder produced 600 plows valued at $4,000.
