Important Information re: the 1890 Census

The actual 1890 Floyd Co., Virgina Census was among those destroyed in the fire/flood in Washington. Fortunately, an abreviated copy was made before the original was sent off & it can be found in the Floyd Co., Virginia Court House.

 

This transcript differs from the original in several ways. The original was sorted 1st by District, & 2nd by first letter of Surname. From there it all sort of runs together. This is a sample of the original:

 

Alum District

Laurence, Darius 37

Emma Z. 35

Malonia A. 14

Posie S. 12

Authur L. 10

Garland 5

Maimie M. 3

German S. 5 mo

Asa H. 42

Elizabeth 42

Kemper G. 15

Minnie A. 13

Albert W. 9

Cleveland 4

Fitzhue 3

Alabama 4 mo

 

It would seem this is not just one huge family but 2 families, one headed by Darius & the other headed by Asa H. From other records (1880 Census, 1900 Census, Marriages et al) we know that this is the case. Therefore, in an attempt to make this transcript user friendly, I have separated them out into family groups whenever possible & then sorted the individual familes or individuals alphabetically. An example using

the above + a sample from another District:

 

Alum Ridge

Laurence, Asa H. 42

Elizabeth 42

Kemper G. 15

Minnie A. 13

Albert W. 9

Cleveland 4

Fitzhue 3

Alabama 4 mo
