1810 Census, Canton Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania

Enumeration Order

Took me a while, but after finding several names listed on Heritage Quest's alphabetical listings that didn't appear is the actual records, I discovered that they included the names at the bottom of the listing for the previous township if that was on the same page with the focus township and sometimes, they included names at the top of the listing for the following township if they were listed on the bottom of a page for the focus township, making it look like those people lived in the focus township...just another challenge to those who search and do not find!
