1890 Oklahoma Territorial Census


 

As counties were created in Oklahoma Territory, they were designated by number until a name was chosen. Beaver County was first known as County 7.

In 1890, Oklahoma Territory was comprised of seven counties:

#1 - Logan
#2 - Oklahoma
#3 - Cleveland
#4 - Canadian
#5 - Kingfisher
#6 - Payne
#7 - Beaver

Oklahoma Historical Society Library has 1890 Oklahoma Territorial census for the seven counties in existence at that time.

Data from that census, regarding birthplace of the head of the household of families living in Kingfisher, Payne and Beaver Counties, has been compiled by Ruth Eager Moran. She used the Index to the 1890 Oklahoma Territorial Census for the Counties of Kingfisher, Payne and Beaver, compiled by Vicki Sullivan and Mac. R. Harris, published in 1977 by the Territorial Press, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
