HELPFUL HINT REGARDING CENSUS RECORDS: Wibaux County had not been formed when the 1910 Federal Census was taken. Most of the County's residents were counted in Dawson County, in the "Wibaux School District."  Residents in the far south of the future Wibaux County were enumerated in the "Carlyle School District" of Custer County.
