1855 New York State Census

Please Note: This census was very faint and difficult to read. Where there is a “?”by a name or word, that is my best guess. If you have a question about any entry, please email me. I will be continuing working on this census for the next few days. If possible, it would be wise to check this against the original microfilm or census. (2/5/2001).
