Click on the first letter of the surname
The original census included columns for persons aged 90-100 years and
"100 and upwards." No persons enumerated in Daviess County
in 1840 were older than 90 years so those columns are not shown in this
file. Columns corresponding to eleven age groups are included here --
eleven columns for males and eleven for females.
The Daviess Co. census enumerator in 1840 was John A. Williams. He identified
the residents of the towns of Gallatin and of Cravensville. The remainder
of the names were grouped into two districts, Gallatin and Cravensville. Pages
1 through 7 were associated with Gallatin District, pages 8 through 15 with
An asterisk (*) after a name indicates the census entry is unclear.
Enumerators misspelled many names in the Federal census. Scrawled and
faded handwriting cause additional errors by researchers. Please report
any spelling errors to the webmaster.
