1865 Clinton County Census




The 1865 population census for Illinois was compiled in each county by census commissioners appointed by the county commissioners courts and filed with the Secretary of State. The census was authorized under an 1845 act, as amended in 1855 (Rev. Stat. 1845, p. 89; L 1855, p. 151). Information shown here for our county includes for each household

Legal subdivisions, such as cities, towns, and townships are not listed.  The writing on the census is not clear, so we set up an Alphabetical Listing to search for familiar looking names.
