The following information was copied from typed text and includes whatever errors were in the original script, whatever errors were in the typed text, and whatever errors we were unable to edit out from our own copy. Much appreciation goes to Joy Neely who thought up this project and spent hours copying and editing.
1858 Austin County Census
In addition to the original text, we have added an index. You will notice in the original text that frequently there are more than one name in the head of household column. The index lists all these names as shown and then shows the page number where the original entry is shown. Following is the first page of manuscript.
We took the liberty of adding column headings rather than using the numbers shown. Also, we omitted several columns showing acreage, crops, totals, etc.
