Re: 1833 Census
In Response To: Re: 1833 Census ()
Just saw this thread..yes there is a 1833 census. Jordan published the Albemarle List in an article in the an article in the Albemarle County Historical Journal ( I think that is the title, can't find it on my shelf).
I found it interesting that in Annette Gordon Reid's 1st book Thomas Jefferson & Sally Hemmings An American Controversyshe mentions that Sally Hemmings was identifed as white in the first census she appeared in (I can't remember which one)..but she appears in the 1833 Census..because as we all know, you are always known in your community.
