Surname Index to the 1870 Census

 

     Every individual, listed alphabetically by surname, first name, and numerically by age, found within the 1870 Federal census of Mercer County, Pennsylvania.

     Compiled from a transcription of National Archives microfilm rolls Publication M593, microfilm rolls #1373 and #1374, transcribed by John MacDonald, March 1999 through October 2000.

     With few exceptions, both microfilm rolls are easy to read. The original pages are well focused with good exposure.  There is usually good contrast between the background paper and the dark letterforms. Rarely are the names difficult to read because of fading ink.

     Nonetheless, ALL the usual precautions about searching for surnames apply. The taking of the census involved many individuals, each of whom interpreted the names as they heard or read them. The spelling of surnames in the census books may not correspond to their modern spellings, either through the result of the natural evolution of the spellings over time or through errors on the part of the enumerators and/or transcribers.

 

For example, the following names have been found in the Mercer census records as they were written in the census, and their modern equivalents:

 

Callahan = written as Colahan

Kirby = written as Hurly, Carby

Kennedy = written as Canaday, Canedy

MacDonald = written as MDonel

ONeil = written as Onail

Perry = written as Bearee

 

 

HINTS FOR SEARCHING:

1) Search for phonetically similar consonants:

      for example: C and K, P and B, W and R, etc.

2) Search under every vowel:

      for example: Eckles = Accles;  Kirby = Kerbie, Karby, Kurbee

3) If double consonants occur in the surname, always check under single consonants. Also consider the doubling of single consonants:

      for example: Collins = Colins, Wilson=Willson, Allen = Alenn

4) Always search under letters which appear similar when handwritten. In several of the townships,  the letters S, L, and T, when occurring as a capital letters in the surname, can be difficult to differentiate - all 3 look nearly identical. If the surnames you're researching begins with S, L, and/or T, search the index under all three letters.

      for example: Sailor = Tailor [Taylor]

5) Surnames in which the first letter(s) were illegible are grouped together under a separate index: (e.g.: *liff, **mp*hrey, etc).
