1900-1

1900 Federal Census, Swisher County, Texas:1:1.1-16.16

1900 Census, Swisher County, Texas

Microfilm number T623, Roll #1670

Supervisor District Number 3, Enumeration District Number 11

Enumerator, S. B. Lofton

    * This enumerator seems to have had a habit of getting

    the unemployed section mixed up with the in school section (he crossed

    out numbers in one section and placed them in the other for some individuals).

    If you run across an individual listed as “in school,” but they seems too

    old, they may have actually been unemployed for the listed number of months.
