CFA 1850 Iowa Census

THIS DATA HAS NOT BEEN VERIFIED BY A SECOND CFA VISIT TO THE MICROFILM.

Data extracted and computer input by Kathleen Tovar CFA #390.

Arranged by county, page, house, and family as enumerated.

For most subjects the age is expressed in years immediately after the sex entry. In some cases - particularly with infants - the age is expressed in months in which case the age column is blank. The age- when expressed in months is in the seldom used column immediately after age.

CYOB or circa year of birth is not from the census. It has been added to this draft to
assist CFA researchers. It was calculated by the computer by subtracting age from 1850.

Color is shown after the circa year of birth. It is assumed to be white unless otherwise
specified.

Birthplace is shown with the approved postal abbreviations for states in the U.S. Foreign places were abbreviated as follows: UN = Unknown, EN = England ,GE = Germany, IR =Ireland, SC = Scotland.

In 1850 the Federal Census began to collect much more information than in any previous census. Some of the data is in information columns after BP. The information is coded as follows: S = in school this year. M = married in the census year. R = can't read and/or write (in some cases the enumerator indicated they could not write and that is shown with a W.

Column headings not meant to line up exactly over the data but rather to give position
relationship

Brinton T. Chapman should be Boynton T. Chapman
Vyman Chapman should be Lyman Chapman (my g-grandfather)
Galmon Chapman probably should be Solomon Chapman (There is some confusion about the correct name; I've also seen it listed as Salmon Chapman. In later life, he was always referred to as S. B. Chapman.) Provided by Jim (Email: jlchap@gte.net)
