Censusindex
Nickens in the Census

The 1800 census recorded Nickens living in 2 states, Virginia and North Carolina. In 1840 Nickens were found in 9 states.  By 1850 they were found in 13 states: Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia. By 1900 they were living in 26 states plus Washington DC.

If the year shows an active link (highlighted) than the records for that year are available by clicking on the year. If the year is inactive that means the records have been transcribed, but have not yet been placed on the web site. When it says 'none,'  that indicates that no Nickens have been found in the census records of that state for that year. That does not mean there were no Nickens there, it simply means they were not found in the census indexes. Several of the families included on these pages were not included in indexes under Nickens and were found by searches of "likely" spellings of the name or by searches in locations where they logically should have been. The name has been spelled in many creative ways in census records, ranging from the obvious misspellings such as Nickins, Nikens, Nichen, Nickings to barely recognizable forms such as Niccan, Ninon and even Neulsens. Verification that they were Nickens came from checking preceding and later census records.  Please let me know if you have additional entries, or if you find any mistakes: jannvald48@gmail.com
