1850 Census - Greenfield Township

Who's Missing from the 1850 Census Index?

Contributed by Larry Sugden

A census index is an alphabetical listing, by surname, of people listed in the census as Head of Household.  It does not include other family members, boarders, or farmhands who also lived with the head of household.

If you a sure that a person lived in a particular area during a census year, but cannot find them in a census index, it would be a good idea to check the actual census record.  Greenfield Township was mostly a farming community, so it was not uncommon for farm owners to have others living with them to help work the farm.

The following is a list of people, who were in Greenfield Township during the 1850 census, and whose last name differs from the head of household.  If you need information on spouses or children, I will do free look-ups for you in the 1850 census (Greenfield Township only), just send me an email with your request.
