Note:  Austin County was organized in 1837.   There are no census records before that time.  However the Old 300 list shows settlers in the Austin County area.  

The 1850 and 1860 sections  also contain indices and Slave Schedules for those years.  The 1890 Tax Assessment is our Austin County attempt to supply information for that decade.   It and the 1858 Census for Austin County were copied from records originating in the courthouse in Bellville.   Remember that alternative 1850 and 1870 Census records are available at   Austin County Archives     at  The Texas USGenWeb Archives.   Also see  Family Search  for 1920 Census information.
