1880

From Supplemental Schedule No. 1 to the 1880 Federal Census

"Insane Inhabitants in the County of Coles, State of Illinois - June, 1880"
©2000, Transcribed by Kim Torp

Note: This list was prepared by the Coles County census enumerators. The folks listed here, with a few exceptions, were usually not institutionalized and lived at home. They can be found on the regular 1880 census living with their families. The line #'s from the regular census are listed on the original schedules, but the microfilming folks cut off most of them. Other information available for each person varies. Spellings are as in the original schedule (or as close as I could make them out!)
