North Carolina 1850 Agricultural Census, Volume 4


These agricultural census records name only the head of the household; however, they do yield unique information about how people lived. Often, individuals who were missed on the regular U.S. census will appear on the agricultural census. Six of the agricultural census's original forty-eight columns are transcribed here: name of owner, improved acreage, unimproved acreage, cash value of farm, value of farm implements and machinery, and value of livestock. This volume covers the counties of: Iredell, Johnston, Jones, Lenoir, Lincoln, McDowell, Macon, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Moore, Nash, New Hanover, Northampton, Onslow, and Orange. A surname index augments the records.
