These 1855 New York State Census are being compiled by volunteers for the Genealogical Group 
Housed in the Roswell P. Flower Memorial Library.
229 Washington St. Watertown, NY 13601

Copyright,  2003-2005 : by The Genealogical Group    

Volunteers that have helped in this project so far are Azilda Baker, Francis Jackson, Johan Jackson, Diana Horning, Terry Mandigo, Albert McGuinnis, Rod Abare, Carolyn Perkins. Margaret Narrow, Linnea (have to get her last name) Shirley Farone, Laurie Williams, Larry Corbett, Sue Gillen, Sarah Anne Cutler, Carolyn Ybarra,  Lynette Stilley, Jack Jowett, Moira Jowett, Phyllis Plant, Jeff Monroe, Florence Secor, Rick Bierman, Marilyn Craig and Alice Corbett.

Note 1. the pages of the census are not numbered. I numbered them as they are easier to keep tract of.
Note 2. On Watertown - the value of real-estate is not entered for all families. Hart Massey seemed to fill in good so I am assuming he didn't repeat if the value was the same as the dwelling above, so I filled them in with that in mind.
Note 3. We started this project using the microfilms in the Library, these microfilms were really bad so we made arrangements to purchase new ones which are much better - so that accounts for the delay in this project - once I stop something just can't get seem to get going again. Thanks to Linnea who volunteered to do Brownville we have decided to put what we have on line and update the additions and corrections.
Note 4. I am putting 4 pages of the census on a web page as we have a limited number of pages we can have on our free search engine. The pages might load slow.

Note 5. The Enumerator's name will be entered on the Town pages index for each District instead of each page of the census. The reason for this is the search engine will pick up that name each time it is entered

           Brownville        Index

First Election District

For some reason the enumerator put the dwelling, type and value all grouped together on each page. 
There isn't any way to correct this as I don't know which dwellings had two families.

Enumerator  Orville Forward

I am putting pages 19 to end on the site not worked or checked. If you don't like it this way let me know as I am thinking of doing the rest the same way.

               Cape Vincent              Index

First Election District xxm

This part of the Cape Vincent census has been hard to do  - not only with the copy of the census not being good, the writing and the names - but with the enumerator not filling in the entries. He did not have Jefferson Co on anything so we have assumed all the blank pob spaces are Jefferson Co.
Be warned.

Theresa      Index


The enumerator of this town started with dwelling and family numbers as he went on first dropped the dwelling numbers then dropped the family numbers.
Without at least the family numbers there is no way I can be sure that the pages are in sequence or what families go together.
Also he did not fill in all of the POB so I am assuming they are Jefferson County and filling the blank spaces with Jeff Co.
 One must take into consideration that he did not enter all he was suppose to - so some that are filled with Jeff Co might not be the place of birth.
