1890 Census - Indian Territory
Old Towson County, Choctaw Nation

Published in The Oklahoma Genealogical Society Quarterly
Volume 27, Number 3, 1982




Yes, a federal census was taken in 1890 for Indian Territory!
Two copies were made at the time of enumeration: one for the U.S. Government; the other to be kept locally.

A fragment of the old Towson County, Choctaw Nation, enumeration was recently found in a court house.
It was sent to the Archives and Manuscripts Division of Oklahoma Historical Society.
We are reproducing it here, in hopes that other parts of the 1890 census can be found and preserved.
The 1890 Oklahoma Territorial census is available.
