Pitts Point 1870 Census

Enumerated on 21 Jul 1870.

In 1870 Pitts Point was a small community of 98 people according to the census taken that year. We have transcribed below the three pages of census records for this community. There may be errors in spelling, and perhaps in ages, as the writing was not always easy to read. The legend below describes what is in each column.

You will note that there appear to be eight dwellings that are unoccupied at the time of this census.

Legend: A - dwelling-house numbered in the order of visitation; B - families numbered in the order of visitation; C - names; D - age; E - gender; F - race (W - white; B - black; M - mulatto); G - occupation / location; H - place born; Notes - summary of additional information in census record
