1790 Town of Tolland, CT Census

Click here to access

The census taker from 1790 did not have the best handwriting, thus some of the names may be wrong.  Also, the column totals did not add up in all instances.  So if you see any obvious corrections, e-mail me with the correct spellings and I will have same corrected.
