1855 Perry County, Illinois State Census
Township 4 South, Range 4 West

Transcribed by Mike Jones

Note :
Parts of the 1855 Perry County state census are very light; other parts are
water-splotched; making it difficult to read in places. Unfortuantely, amny of the
barely legible portions are in the "Names" section. If anyone has a better copy,
corrections - and additions - are welcomed.
