1860 Census--Ivy Hills Township

1860 Federal Census--North Carolina
Haywood County--Ivy Hills Township


This census was started the first day of June, 1860 and continued through the summer and fall of that year until the entire United States population was accounted for.
Ivy Hill Township was counted by Mr. Ninion Edmonston. The handwriting is very hard to decipher, so I'm sure there are mistakes in my transcription. I have transcribed it as accurately as I can read it with no imput of my own except those marked as below.
This transcription is meant as a guide only, not as a provable document. For provability, you need a photocopy of the actual census image.
There is more information on the census pages than I have transcribed here.The 1860 census notes both real and personal property values and education of the persons counted along with each person's mental and physical condition.

notations in italics are mine
