Re: MD - Researching Free Persons before 1850

Hello All,

The recent update on Ancestry.com may help to clear up the What, How, When & Where as it relates to FPOC in the Federal Census prior to 1850.

Here are the Indexed Listings for Lewis Adams, a 3rd great-grandfather and an FPOC in Champaign County, Ohio for the Census Years 1820-1840.

When viewing the images on Census Microfilm only the name of the head of household (hoh) appears. The family structure is indicated by numbers of individuals under the appropiate headings for age, sex & race.

Hope this helps in this discussion of FPOC in Federal Census records prior to 1850
