The following census of Croydon, Sullivan County, NH was extracted by Dennis Partridge from 7 Jan 2010 through 14 March 2010. The extraction provides basic information such as the names, ages, sex, and occupation of each resident of Croydon. For space purposes and speed, I have chosen not to do a complete extraction, but may choose at a later date to add the full transcription. Every person enumerated in Croydon, however, is listed. For further verification of this census, researchers should view the original census records.
For purposes of search, I have taken the liberty of adding the surname of each person. In the actual record, only the first person of each families surname per page was listed, while the remaining individuals of that family name were listed as ” for their surname.
An extraction of a census is very much a work of art. The handwriting of Pliny Hall left many of the names indistinguishable, and often he spelled the name as it sounded, instead of as it actually occurred for the person in the records of the town, and in their family history. I have taken the liberty in my extraction of providing positive identity of each person enumerated – by this I mean I have used my knowledge of the residents of Croydon, NH at that time to identify each person, and used their proper name.
The total census for Croydon incorporated 20 pages of images, of which each page has two images A and B. For ease of usage I have chosen to place both the A and B sides onto one page. So you will find 110A and 110B on page 110 below.
