1790 Census
Wheatfield Township
Westmoreland County 


Click Here to view some noted differences in the transcription.

Format is as follows:

Full name of head of household followed by five numbers, representing tallies of age groups of people living in the household, including the head of the household, as follows:

Column 1: Free White Males age 16 & upwards, including heads of households"
Column 2: Free White Males under the age of 16
Column 3: All Free White Females including heads of families
Column 4: All other free persons
Column 5: Slaves

Names are given in the same order as on the original microfilm. I listed the surnames in all capital letters for ease of scanning. If a given name was abbreviated by the enumerator, I have listed it the same way.

Legibility was average at best in the original, and in the case of ambiguity or unclear names, an asterisk (*) follows the name in question. This applies both to given names and surnames. The original census enumerators of 1790 had very different styles of penmanship which may be cause for some confusion over two hundred years later.
