The following records have been extracted from the 4 reels of microfilm of the 1865 New York State Census.
Some records were very difficult to read. Extensive cross-checking against veteran records and census records was done to get the most accurate results possible. But you might still want to get the microfilm and check the records for yourself. Due to spelling variations the data will not work well with a search engine or finder, so it is presented in spreadsheet format, sorted alphabetically by surname for ease in browsing. You may expect to see, for example, several people with the last name of Williams but residing in different towns of Jefferson County.
Columns listed for MARRIAGES are the names of the Bride and Groom, their age, their pre-civil condition prior to marriage, such as single, widowed or divorced, the date of marriage, the City or Town where married, the clergy affiliation of minister or civil magistrate who performed the marriage ceremony, and the census district from the 1865 state census.
Columns listed for DEATHS are Name, Age, Sex, Color, Marital Status, Date of Death, Native State or Country of Origin, Trade or Occupation, Cause of Death and Census Town.
Bold print indicates that the record was illegible or I just couldn't figure out what it was.
The last column lists the census town so that the microfilms may be checked to verify any records in question or to view the actual census for that family.
