1860 U.S. Census, Iowa, Lee County

ID#2370, b. 1 June 1860
As households were enumerated in a census (1850 and later), they were given consecutive dwelling numbers. Looking at the numbers shown below, consecutive numbers indicate "next door" neighbors, close numbers indicate families living near each other.

Note that there is a link for the head of most households that will take you to that individual's person page containing detailed information for him or her. If you click the link but your browser stays on this page, it indicates that there is no detailed person page included yet for that individual. An easy way to confirm that this is the case is to check for the person's name in the "Surname Index" - names only appear for people with a person page. Those types of links will gradually disappear as I continue adding people from my database.

Original spelling is retained in the information below - be aware that census records often contain many inaccuracies.
