Description

This is a transcribed copy of the 1830 abstract federal census of Madison County. This lists the total number of people, the number of free inhabitants, the number of enslaved inhabitants, and the population to be used in calculating representatives and taxation. Because enslaved African Americans were counted as 3/5 of a person for representation under the United States Constitution, the population to be used for representation differs from the actual number of inhabitants of Madison County.
