Re: [Nationwide] State census
In Response To: [Nationwide] State census ()


Great tip and Link to off-year census records. I recently found a 2nd great-grandfather, William Adams and his family on a New York Census Record from 1855. I had no idea he and his family were ever in the State of New York.

William Adams was born in for Champaign County, Ohio ca 1818.

Here is an image of the 1855 record:
Line 24
William Adams 37 M B Ohio.........Clerk
Leida (Lydia) 37 F B PA
Margaret 5 F B OH
William 3 M B OH
Isaak (Isaac) 1 M B OH

note: Isaac is my great-grandfather.

Here is Lydia and her children in the 1860 Census found in Champaign County Ohio. William is absent in 1860 he was on his way to California with a wagon train.
