1816 Claiborne Census


Inhabitants of Mississippi in 1816 Claiborne County

 

Note: Taken from The Official and Statistical Register of the State of Mississippi, Centennial Edition, 1917, by Dunbar Rowland, Director of the Department of Archives and History, printed in Madison, Wisconsin, by the Democrat Printing Company, pages 85-89.

 

Take caution in using a search feature with this material.  This census taker, William Bridgers, assessor of Claiborne County, often spelled phonetically; consequently, common given names such as Henry, Rebecca. Patrick and  Richard are consistently misspelled in this document.  Also, he may have spelled  the same surname in different ways, such as Rundell and  Rundall.  In addition, the transcriber may have made mistakes, too, copying from and trying to interpret his original.
