1870 Census

Alden Township, Polk Co., Wisconsin


 










If you have ever attempted to transcribe a census you know why they call the writing style "cursive" !!  Enough said, I did the best I could.   I feel the information, other than names, is accurate. I welcome any corrections.

The column headings are as follows: Dwelling #, Family #, Surname, Given name, Age, Sex, Race, Occupation, Estate Value, Asset Value, Birthplace. (All "Race" values left blank are white.  There was one family were the mother and children were noted as Indian.)
