1860 Sumter District Federal Census
(Partial Transcriptions)

On the following web pages, you will find information transcribed from the 1860, Sumter, South Carolina Federal Census. This information was generously donated by supporters of the Sumter, Clarendon, and Lee SCGenWeb home pages.

Jane Hill sent me her  1850 files, which got this project started. Then, Bobby Thigpen sent in what he has of 1850 and 1860.

If you would like to contribute more data to this project, the best way to accomplish that would be as follows:
1. Type your data into spreadsheet form.
2. Only place about 50 names in a file. (Larger files lock up a browser.)
3. Be sure to place a number in the name of your files as well as the census year, so that I know their order.
4. E-mail your files to me, one at a time.

The pages that you will find here are linked  only from this index page.
There are no links back. (Too many web pages, not enough time to get them all up.)
Please use your back and forward buttons to view each page in turn.

If you have other data to add to these files that we can post, please send those too.

"Each smallest act of kindness reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away....."
This Momentous Day, H.R. White

Let's continue our circle of sharing.
