Description

This is a transcribed copy of the 1820 federal census of Madison County. The page this was taken from lists every county that existed in Illinois in 1820; this copy only lists Madison County. It includes population data broken down by race, gender, and age, including the number of enslaved and free African Americans. It does not include any possible Native Americans living in Madison County. It also lists the number of people engaged in agriulture, manufacturing, and commerce. Please note that at the time of the 1820 census, Madison County was much larger than its current boundaries. See Border History of Madison County.
