1850 Jasper County, IL Census

This is more of the 1850 Jasper County, IL census. The film was hard to read in places and I don't make any claims for being the best transcriptionist around! I'm sure there are errors in my interpretation of their handwriting, so if you recognize an error, feel free to notify me. And as always . . . verify everything for yourself!!!

St Marie Precinct

14 Dec 1850

(Starting with the last person in house 283, the sheets are dated 4 Dec 1850. This is also where the precinct changes to Island Grove Precinct, even though the first individual listed on this page belongs to the family listed in Ste. Marie precinct.)

(This was particularly tough to read. The more question marks there are, the less confident I am of my interpretation)
