1870 Cabell County, West Virginia Census


Every census has its own value; something that makes it different from all the rest. The 1870 Census’s value comes from the information which can be gleaned about the Civil War. Are the sons missing? Too many widows? Not enough married women? The War caused many changes in America and sent many families west for a new beginning. Much about these displaced families appears in the 1870 Census if the researcher just has the patience to dig into the material.

This work contains 1870 Census data for Census Districts: Barboursville, Grant, Guyandotte, McComas, and Union. Several maps, facsimile reprints of Cabell County Press pages (23 August 1869), and a full-name index add to the value of this work.
