Census Records of Allen County, Indiana
Individual Census Records from 1790 to 1950 are maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration, not the U.S. Census Bureau.
Article 1, Section 2 of the United States Constitution mandates a Census of the population every 10 years. President James Madison summary debate on the 1790 Census Bill January 25, 1790 stated it was to tell the number of military-age men in the country. See image September 17, 2014 on United States Census Bureau Facebook page. October 5, 1978 began The
72-Year Rule at the United States Census Bureau the law which restricts public access to 72 years after each decennial census. Census Records: The 72-Year Rule by Jessie Kratz, posted January 20, 2022 in Census, National Archives History at the The National Archives. Famous and Infamous Census Records also at the United States Census Bureau. In the 21st century, we hear the reason for the census is to decide which states gain or lose representatives in the House of Representatives, especially as the population moves around from state to state.

#DYK U.S. marshals and their assistants began the count for our nation’s first census #OnThisDay in 1790?
In fact, the United States Marshals Service conducted our nation’s population, economic, and agriculture censuses through the 1870 Census. This changed in 1880 when Congress authorized the hiring of specially trained supervisors and enumerators.

#CensusHistory Fun Fact: In 1910, Census Day, the day that determines who is counted and where they are counted, was April 15.
#CensusDay moved to January 1 in 1920 but then back to April in 1930. Every 10 years since then, we have continued to conduct the decennial census as of April 1.

Indiana Territory was established from the Old Northwest Territory in 1800. Michigan Territory was separated in 1805 and Illinois Territory in 1809. Indiana Counties: Knox County formed in 1790, Clark County in 1801 and Dearborn County in 1803. In 1806 the General Assembly of the Indiana Territory passed a resolution to enable the Governor of this territory, for equal representation to the general assembly. The sheriffs of the counties of Dearborn, Clark, Knox and Randolph (Illinois). Take a list of all the free males 21 years and older, and return the list to the secretary of the state on or before the June 1st 1807. There are no known copies of the Clark County census taken in 1806; there are copies of the voters list for this county for the same year. Dearborn County included an area from Fort Recovery, Ohio southwest to Madison,Indiana, including all or part of current Wayne, Franklin, Union, Fayette, Dearborn, Ohio, Rush and Switzerland Counties. There is a 57 page book: Census of Indiana Territory for 1807 at the Allen County Public Library. See 1807 Indiana Territory Census list of names by Karen Creamer, Census Schedule 1807 by John Minneman, 1807 Dearborn Co, Indiana Territory Census Schedule at INGenWeb and 1807 Knox County Census of Indiana Territory at GenealogyTrails.com.
On August 29, 1814, the Indiana Territorial Legislature adopted a resolution requiring a census of the "free inhabitants" of the territory, which excluded Native Americans and enslaved African Americans. In 1812, the U.S. Congress recommended that the territory's population be at least 35,000 as a qualification for statehood. The census, completed in 1815, enumerated the population of Indiana at 63,897. Learn more about Indiana's road to Indiana Statehoodon IN.govcopied August 29, 2017 with census image from

December 11, 1816, James Madison the 4th President of the United States admitted Indiana as the 19th state of the union, so the earliest federal census will be the 1807 Territorial Census currently found on Ancestry.com by subscription. The Indiana Bicentennial and Indiana Bicentennial - Allen County on Facebook were formed for the bicentennial. More bicentennial information can be found on our Indiana Bicentennial page.
Allen County, Indiana was
organized December 17, 1823 from Delaware and Randolph counties; and officially formed as a county April 1, 1824, so there are no Federal Census records for Allen County, Indiana before 1830. Allen County residents might be found in either Delaware or Randolph County in the 1820 Federal Census.
Most census records are available locally on microfilm at the Genealogy Center in the Allen County Public Library shown on their Census Records on Microtext page. Many census records are now online, but not all, as digitized images of the NARA microfilm formerly found only in libraries and research facilities. Many indexes are also online.

As the nation readies itself for the 2020 U.S. Census, Hoosier History Live will take a close look at how records of the previous national headcounts - there have been 23 of them in all, beginning with the first in 1790 - can be used to unearth factual information and illuminate social history, as well as inform us about other aspects of our heritage. Our exploration will highlight various challenges faced by the once-a-decade tallying of the population - most of the 1890 Census records were destroyed in a massive fire, for example - as well as the widely disparate questions that have been asked by census takers."The first five enumerations listed the number of slaves in each household, and the 1930 enumeration listed whether or not there was a radio in the household," says our guest, Indianapolis-based history researcher Sharon Butsch Freeland. Sharon regularly uses census information to delve into the history of families and old houses, as well as to investigate historical figures such as the Indianapolis-born wife of Treasure Island author Robert Louis Stevenson.

Agricultural schedule provides details about farms, number of animals and amount of crops produced. Manufacturing schedules provide details of how many people involved and what kind of machines and raw materials used. The National Archives has an intro page Nonpopulation Census Records . The Census Bureau PDF explains what's on the agricultural schedules. Non-population schedules were not microfilmed by the National Archives, instead were kept on the state level, such as the Indiana State Archives in charge of the originals and microfilm copies given to the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis and the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne. A majority of these schedules are available on microfilm in the Genealogy Center. To locate these schedules, one can search their Microtext Catalog under the Census Records category https://www.genealogycenter.info/search_microtext.php. The Genealogy Center has most of Indiana’s schedules on microfilm, but they are not accessible online.
The Indiana State Archives has these nonpopulation censuses for Indiana:
- Agriculture: 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880
- Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes: 1880
- Industry/Manufacturing: 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880
- Social Statistics: 1850, 1860, 1870

U.S. Census Non-Population Schedules
by Cynthia Theusch
When doing genealogical research, one should look for ways to add more historical context for one’s ancestors. A useful and often overlooked resource is the 1850-1880 Non-Population Census Schedules, which provide detailed information about farms, factories, and other types of statistical information. These supplementary schedules include Agricultural; Manufacturing/Industrial; Social Statistics (1850-1870); Mortality; Slave (1850-1860); Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes (1880); and Business (1935).
The Genealogy Center has the Non-Population Census schedules for some states on microfilm. To access this list, go to our homepage www.genealogycenter.org, select the “Our Resources” tab and choose Free Databases, and then click on the Microtext Catalog. At this screen, click on Census Records. A box will pop-up with a display showing what schedules and years we have for specific states. Those of some, but not all, states can also be found on Ancestry by selecting “Census and Voter Lists” and then choosing the “U.S. Federal Census Collection.”
The Agricultural Schedules provide detailed information about specific farms with the number of acres of developed and undeveloped land. Other collected data include the number and type of livestock; types and amount of grain and potatoes; butchered meat; wool; milk; butter; eggs; and honey. To be included in these schedules, a farm had to be valued at $100 or more. If you are lucky enough to find an ancestor’s farm, it will provide you with a detailed statistical record of its operation.
The Manufacturing/Industrial Schedules contain the business name or the name of the proprietor, the type of business, the amount of capital investment, raw materials used (including fuel); type of power or machinery; the average number of employees; wages paid; and annual products (quantity, kinds, and value).
The Mortality Schedules cover deaths that happened during the year before the population census was taken (June 1 through May 31). They record the name of the deceased, sex, age, color, whether widowed, place of birth, month of death, profession, cause of death, number of days he/she was ill, parents’ birthplaces (added in 1870), and the place where disease was contracted and how long the deceased lived in the area (added in 1880). The 1870 and 1880 schedules also include the family dwelling number from the population schedule (this connection presents possible new family members that were unknown from the population schedule).
Because Indiana’s Agricultural and Manufacturing schedules are not available on Ancestry or FamilySearch, researchers may wish to use those on microfilm here in the Genealogy Center. In addition, the Center has three book indexes for Indiana’s mortality schedules. Two sets cover the 1850 schedule. The 1850 Indiana Mortality Schedule (9772.2 V88E, v1-v3) is a county-by-county transcript, while the other 1850 is an alphabetical index (977.2 J13im). There is also a 3-volume name index for 1850 to 1880 (977.2 In2683i).
The 1850-1870 Social Statistics contain three different schedules, but researchers have access only to one. This schedule covers data and information about county and city taxes, schools, libraries, newspapers and magazines, churches and hourly wages, with or without board.
In 1880, these schedules focus on Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes. The set contains seven schedules that cover Insane, Idiots, Deaf-Mutes, Blind, Homeless Children, Pauper and Indigent, and Prisoners. The first six tells whether the individual was living at home, living with someone else in a private home, or in a specialized home or institution.
As previously stated, Ancestry and FamilySearch have images of non-population schedules for a select number of states. Linda L. Green has compiled abstracts in book form of the Agricultural and Manufacturing schedules for additional states: Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia. These volumes can be found in the Genealogy Center collection and at other research libraries. Blank forms of these schedules are available on the National Archives (NARA) website: https://www.archives.gov/research/genealogy/charts-forms. NARA also provides a list of original extant schedules by state, 1820-1930, at https://www.archives.gov/research/census/nonpopulation. For example, Indiana’s schedules include the original Agricultural, Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes (1880), Industry/Manufacturing, and the Social Statistics, all of which are located at the Indiana State Archives. The Mortality Schedules, 1850–1880, are kept at the Indiana State Library.
If you haven’t used these non-population schedules in your family research, they are worth the effort to find and review them. They offer a way of discovering new information beyond the population schedules that will help make your ancestors come alive.
Census of Agriculture
The Census of Agriculture is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. Even small plots of land - whether rural or urban - growing fruit, vegetables or some food animals count if $1,000 or more of such products were raised and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the Census year. The Census of Agriculture, taken only once every five years, looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures. For America’s farmers and ranchers, the Census of Agriculture is their voice, their future, and their opportunity. Copied from Census of Agriculture at United States Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service.
The Historical Census of Ag Publications has a dropdown menu with pdf's back to 1840 on the Census of Agriculture page or a seperate page: USDA Census of Agriculture Historical Archive at Cornell University which
is a collaborative project between Albert R. Mann Library at Cornell University and USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). The site serves as the public archive of all historical agricultural census publications. The Census of Agriculture, taken every five years, is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. The Census looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures, and many other areas. The first agriculture Census was taken in 1840 as part of the Sixth Decennial Census of Population. For 156 years (1840 – 1996) the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census was responsible for collecting data for the Census of Agriculture.
This information came from a November 7, 2022 post by Indiana State Data Centeron Facebook stating:
From the Indiana Department of Agriculture: The Census of Agriculture is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them.
