Re: Look Up Needed from 1830 Free Negro Heads Book

Would it be possible to post jut one more page over for Gibson & Haywood County TN?

Here is page 160 from the 1830 Free Negro Heads of Families. Gibson County, TN is at the top of the page, 2nd column. It appears Haywood County, TN had no FPOC enumerated for 1830.

A nice updated feature on is the breakout of the family structure for census records prior to 1850.

Example ...
Free Negro Heads (1830 - pg 160) shows Benjamin Bradberry (HOH) as between the age of 36-54 with 7 persons in his household.

The Ancestry breakout reflects:
1830 United States Federal Census
Name: Benjamin Bradberry
Home in 1830: , Gibson, Tennessee
Free Colored Persons - Males - 36 thru 54: 1
Free Colored Persons - Females - 10 thru 23: 5
Free Colored Persons - Females - 36 thru 54: 1
Total Free Colored Persons: 7

This indicates a male & a female between ages 36-54 and five (5) females between the ages 10-23, probably daughters of Benjamin Bradberry and his wife. Seven (7) persons in this family structure.

Hope this helps in your research,
Art Thomas
