Hunterdon County, New Jersey, 1895 State Census, Part II: Kingwood-West Amwell


Hunterdon County borders Pennsylvania to the west, touches the Musconetcong Mountains to the north and its southern tip is only a few miles north of Trenton. This is Volume II of a complete transcription of the Hunterdon Co. 1895 State Census, Reel 34, filmed on 10/26/88, for the New Jersey State Archives. Volume II covers eleven townships and over 18,400 people. The text details information recorded in the second portion of the film: Kingwood Township, the City of Lambertville (First, Second and Third Wards), Lebanon Township, Raritan Township and the town of Flemington, Readington Township, Tewksbury Township, Union Township, and West Amwell Township.
