1830 U.S. Census, Virginia, Ohio County

ID#2029, b. 1 June 1830
Prior to the 1850 U.S. Census, the head of each household was the only individual identified by name. All members of a household were classified by gender into age ranges (and these fell into groupings by race and slavery) - from these breakdowns it is sometimes possible to extrapolate who the individuals were when info about the family is known from other sources. The households listed below show the classifications as reported, followed by names in italics when I have been able to determine them.

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 misspelled names.
