Morris County
1865 Agricultural Census
Council Grove Twp.


This census was taken June 17th and 18th, 1865, and listed values of farms, livestock, crops, etc., for the fiscal year 1864-1865. Listings for livestock were as of May 1, 1865. The enumerator was R. B. Lockwood.

The agricultural census was at the end of the 1865 population census. In some cases the corresponding name on the population census was spelled differently than the name on the agricultural census. In that case I included both spellings.
