FPOC 1860 Loudoun County VA
I am including notes correlating families to other records (when possible) - birth, death marriage and the Register of Free Negroes.
What is interesting is that many of the families/individuals residing free in Loudoun on the 1860 census are NOT in the register.
This will not be an alphabetized list - all families/individuals will be listed geographically - by their census page and when living in another household (for example: laborer working for white farmer James McNaulty) I have made a notation - since some of the families folks were working for were prior slave-owners.
I hope this will help some of you who had kin from Loudoun.
May I also suggest that any of you who have time on your hands (grin) volunteer to transcribe census records from other counties/states.
I am learning so much about Loudoun as I slowly list it's residents - occupations, marital relations, living status, finances, neighbors - what started originally as a search for my own kin has now embraced a whole county.
