Friday Research Notes

I’m not sure what happened to Thursday, but here we go with a new set for today:

Goshen has 22 census pages as well. This town had our first enslaved person in a while, a man aged over 55. Also another female centenarian. 43 total nonwhite individuals in 22 households, 8 of them nonwhite.

Benjamin Prince    3
Robert    Kendi    2
Charles    Walker    4
Philip    Roe    3
Harry    Johnson    5
Jacob    Prince    5
George    Anthony    4
Oliver    Guerns    2

And so we move on to Harwinton and its 20 census pages. 16 individuals in 10 households, only one of them independent: Chauncey B. Mix and the 4 other members of his (presumed) family.

Next up is Kent, with 28 census pages. Another female centenarian! 38 individuals total in 23 households, and a whole 3 of them nonwhite:

Collins Fitch    3
Charles Else    3
Timothy Vandorus 7 (includes the centenarian)

Litchfield comes next, with 62 census pages. 142 individuals in 64 households, 34 of them independent (over half!!). This will definitely be worth looking into.
