Agricultural Schedules

Agricultural schedules of 1850, 1860, and 1870 provide the following information for each farm: name of owner or manager, number of improved and unimproved acres, and the cash value of the farm, farming machinery, livestock, animals slaughtered during the past year, and "homemade manufactures." The schedules also indicate the number of horses, mules, "milch cows," working oxen, other cattle, sheep, and swine owned by the farmer. The amount of oats, rice, tobacco, cotton, wool, peas and beans, Irish potatoes, sweet potatoes, barley, buckwheat, orchard products, wine, butter, cheese, hay, clover seed, other grass seeds, hops, hemp, flax, flaxseed, silk cocoons, maple sugar, cane sugar, molasses, and beeswax and honey produced during the preceding year is also noted. The 1880 schedules provide additional details, such as the amount of acreage used for each kind of crop, the number of poultry, and the number of eggs produced. The figures provided were not actual inventories. If the farmer did not keep detailed farm records, all figures were estimates.

"In 1918 (prior to the establishment of the National Archives), the Bureau of the Census decided to distribute the agricultural schedules to the states. Thus the censuses for 1850 through 1880 were not included in the collection of census enumerations transferred to the National Archives. This distribution is significant as it preserved these records for future research. The 1890 agricultural census was lost due to fire, the 1900 and 1910 agricultural censuses were destroyed by congressional order, and only fragments of the 1920 enumeration are extant. These records, either in the original or later on microfilm, made their way into various collections in state archives, state historical societies, and university libraries. Some of these institutions made microfilm copies available to the National Archives, so it is possible to view Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Washington, and Wyoming as well as Baltimore City and County, and Worcester County, Maryland, in Washington, D.C. (Note the absence of North Carolina!). In addition, not all years for all states are available. A further caveat is that, unlike population census records which are extensively, if often poorly indexed, the agricultural census remains, for the most part, unindexed. In order to find the appropriate entry, you must first locate the individual in the population census and then use the county and locality information found there to identify the correct locality in the agricultural census. By reading line-by-line, you will be able to locate the correct individual’s listing."

"The agricultural censuses, often overlooked by genealogists, provide insight into the daily lives of our ancestors. They not only place an individual within a financial and social context, but act as supplements to other land, tax record, probate and estate research, and often can help distinguish between two individuals by the same name living in the same location or identify free blacks prior to the Civil War."


Exclusions--Not every farm was included in these schedules. In 1850, for example, small farms that produced less than $100 worth of products annually were not included. By 1870, farms of less than three acres or which produced less than $500 worth of products were not included.

Industry/Manufacturers Schedules

Industry schedules are useful for illustrating the industrial and technological development of the country. These schedules collected information about manufacturing, mining, fishing, and mercantile, commercial, and trading businesses with an annual gross product of $500 or more. The schedule lists the name of each corporation, company, or individual, a description of the type of business, amount of capital invested, the quantity and value of resources used, the quantity of yearly production, and the number of individuals hired, etc. In 1870 distinctions were made between child and adult labor. In 1880 companies were classified into categories.


Social Statistics and Supplemental Schedules

Social statistics schedules compiled from 1850 to 1880 contain three items of specific interest for the genealogist: (1) The schedules list cemetery facilities within city boundaries, including maps with cemeteries marked; the names, addresses, and general description of all cemeteries; procedures for interment; cemeteries no longer functioning; and the reasons for their closing. (2) The schedules also list trade societies, lodges, clubs, and other groups, including their addresses, major branches, names of executive officers, and statistics showing members, meetings, and financial worth. (3) The schedules list churches, including a brief history, a statement of doctrine and policy, and a statistical summary of membership by county.

Other information recorded on the social statistics schedules include the aggregate value of property, a breakdown of taxes paid, a list of schools, colleges, and academies with their numbers of teachers and students, a list of libraries and their number of books, a list of newspaper and periodicals published within a community, the number of paupers supported by the community, the number of criminals convicted within the previous year, and the number of convicts in jail.


In 1880 a supplemental schedule, called Dependent, Defective, and Delinquent Classes, was included. This schedule listed by name the insane, idiots, deaf mutes, blind, paupers, indigent persons, homeless children, and prisoners. In addition to the individual’s name, their race, gender, age, residence, and medical information may have been recorded.


Mortality Schedules

Part of the U.S. Federal Censuses from 1850-1880 included a mortality schedule enumerating the individuals who had died in the previous year. Because each of the censuses from 1850-1880 began on June 1, “previous year” refers to the 12 months preceding June 1, or June 1 (of the previous year) to May 31 (of the census year).

This database contains an index to individuals enumerated in these mortality schedules. In addition, each individual is linked to the census image on which they appear. Not all information that is recorded on the actual census is included in the index. Therefore, it is important that you view the image on which your ancestor is recorded to obtain all possible information about him/her.

In addition to the Federal Mortality Schedules, this database also includes Mortality Schedules from two State Censuses – Colorado and Florida – from 1885.

Questions asked in the mortality schedules:

•Deceased's name
•Sex
•Age
•Color (White, black, mulatto)
•Whether widowed
•Place of birth (state, territory, or country)
•Month in which the death occurred
•Profession, occupation, or trade
•Disease or cause of death
•Number of days ill
•Parents' birthplaces (added in 1870)
•Place where disease was contracted and how long the deceased was a resident of the area (added in 1880)

Sports Center Saturday - Baseball and Softball in the Family

Baseball and Softball has played a big part in Stan's family. This photo is a photo made in 1905 of a textile mill league softball team. Stan's Mother's Grandfather, Franklin Drayton Prince, was a young man on this team. He played Centerfield.










This is Stan's Mother when she was young and she played on the textile mill's fast pitch softball team.















All 6 of her children played baseball and softball.



















Stan is the little boy in the center of the front row. Remember you can click on the photographs to enlarge them and read the names of each boy. And, yes that is the Paul Riddle who was a member of the Marshall Tucker Band.



















Stan was the coach one year for the church softball team and they won their championship. Stan is in the center of the front row next to the trophy in the shorts with the mustache.


























This is one of our nephews, Evans, who was so good at baseball that he won a baseball scholarship to Presbyterian College. Unfortunately during his first season with them he injured his shoulder and had to have surgery on it. It ended his baseball career. Fortunately he is good at any sport and can still be active in other things.





















This is Evans brother, Aaron. He also is great at every sport he has ever picked up. He loves baseball and football.


All the grandchildren are very athletic and have played sports.

Tanner's Orchard, Speer, IL

We took Brett to Tanner's Orchard in Speer, IL. We really enjoyed our time there and bought a little fortune in products.































Brett enjoyed playing in the playground and seeing the animals.
