Montgomery County, Virginia 1810 Census
Montgomery County, Virginia 1810 Census.
This is the first surviving census for Montgomery, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. A full name index is provided. Montgomery was an important and populous county in the mountainous foothills of southwestern Virginia and it was situated along the Great Road or Valley Road as it was called, which stretched from Maryland to the Cumberland Gap and beyond into Tennessee and Kentucky.
This and other 1810 censuses are transcribed by the author from the original images, and while many of Virginia's censuses are available online, they oftentimes are replete with misreadings. Caveat emptor!
