Search Story Co. 1854 Census Records
This is the first state census taken of Story County. The effective date of the census was 01 Jun 1854. Errors may have been introduced by the census taker or by my transcription. At the time of this census, only five townships had been formed. Colored males and females were separately enumerated in this census. There were none enumerated for Story County therefore those fields are not included here. Only the figures written by the census taker are shown. For example, totals were not always written in which case they are not included here.
Only 173 inhabitants were counted. The totals as written on one of the census sheet for the county are:
Township Males Females Voters Militia Aliens Lafayette 53 41 20 Indian Creek 102 87 40 Franklin 89 63 33 28 3 Washington 88 91 39 40 Nevada 104 104 34 39
It seems militia were not counted in all townships. Some of the census was very difficult to read.
