CONNECTICUT

CENSUS REPORTS

1790  -  1930

 

UPDATED NOVEMBER 13, 2012

 

Initially I will list the entries by Town and County. I have then listed by the way they come up in the actual census to show proximity to each other. This will give a better idea who lives near one another, and should help in determining family groups. If possible, I have included the personís Ďnumberí based on the various books by Eben Putnam on the Putnam Family.

CONNECTICUT 1790 CENSUS

 

In the 1790 census, the columns in the report are for males over 16, males under 16 and females of all ages. If a 4th number is listed, it is a listing for Ďall other whitesí which generally meant an unrelated servant.

Listing is 1-3-3. He is number 936, a son of Jonathan Putnam (359) and Sarah Perley of Salem Village (now Danvers), Massachusetts. He was born there September 6, 1756. He married Olive Osborne (I believe here in Connecticut) in about 1880. He served in the Connecticut Militia in the Revolution. He will be here in 1800, and then die, and Olive and the kids (Nathan and Jeremiah) will be off to New York State. Olive was a daughter of Daniel and Sarah Osborne and was born in Ridgefield, Connecticut July 4, 1756 (a Ďfewí years before it became a HolidayJ).
