Florida 1860 Agricultural Census


Although this census names only the head of household, often times when an individual was missed on the regular census, he would appear on the agricultural census. So you might try checking this census for your missing relatives. Unfortunately, many of the agricultural censuses have not survived, but they do yield unique information about how people lived. There are 46 columns of information, six of which are transcribed here. The six are: name of owner, improved acreage, unimproved acreage, cash value of the farm, value of farm implements and machinery, and value of livestock. Included is a listing of the other types of information available on the agricultural census.
