Index to the 1880 Rockingham County, Virginia Census. Patricia Turner Ritchie.
The compiler of this index utilized microfilm copies of the original census lists and has rendered a careful and accurate indexing of all persons in the county at that time. To help pinpoint a location more accurately, she used the town instead of just listing the district. As anyone who has worked with 1880 censuses is aware, this is of great benefit because of the very poor handwriting and condition of the original lists.
