The following schedule is the whole number of persons within the division, Tyrrell County, allotted to Moses E. Cator, assistant to the Marshall for the District of North Carolina. This schedule was subscribed by Moses on the 19th day of Dec 1810. Contents are as follows:

  • Pages 708 - 730 contain Head of Household Data. Pages 719 - 725 were poor quality microfilm.
  • Page 731 contains a summary of whole persons by page.
  • Page 732 contains House Hold Manufactorers (quantity).
  • Page 733 contains House Hold Manufactorers (value).
  • Page 734 was missing.
  • Page 735 has the 2nd half of page 734 (not included here).

    This census was reported by Head of Family and is broken down in the following manner:

  • Names of heads of families
  • Free white males under 10 years of age
  • Free white males of 10 and under 16
  • Free white males of 16 and under 26, including heads of families
  • Free white males of 26 and under 45, including heads of families
  • Free white males of 45 and upwards, including heads of families

    Every attempt has been made to enter this data as exactly as recorded by the census taker. Even obvious spelling errors are not corrected, therefore you may find some exciting new spelling of your family name since the census taker used phonics; for example: Felps versus Phelps. For purposes of readability, zeros have been substituted for blanks in numeric columns.

    Several problems were encountered which made transcribing this data error prone. Some of the microfilm was damaged, thus making it difficult to decipher. The handwriting made it difficult to distinguish between "c", "e" and "i" and between "a", "o" and "u". Most names for which there is some question are flagged with a "?".

    To reduce the possibility of errors, the transciption was checked against the original records at the National Archives by an independent party, and against the 1810 NC Census Index. The totals for each column were checked which led to some corrections and in other cases merely pointed out errors in the original census totals. If you find a discrepency between the actual census and this data, please let me know so this data can be corrected.
