1800 Lincoln Co. Census
Posted by: Diana Gale Matthiesen Date: August 10, 2000 at 12:16:29
  of 2014

I've just discovered that the Broderbund (Family Tree Maker) "1800 Census Index" disk (CD-312) has most of the records from Lincoln Co., NC, missing. There are only 23 records for this county in this year. The database at GenealogyLibrary.com is similarly afflicted. So if you're tearing your hair because you known someone should be there, and they're not, the reason is the incompleteness of the records.

FYI, the surnames present are: CARPENTER, DEAL, DURR, ESPEY, HOGGINS, HOKE, JOHNSTON, LUTZ, MASTER, McKEE, McKESICK, McLESTER, MILLER, NORMAN, PRICE, RUTLEDGE, and YOUNT.

The reason for the incompleteness may be that the schedules for the county are mostly missing or unreadable. Does anyone know if there is an index or transcription of the 1800 Lincoln Co. Census available somewhere? I don't see one at the USGenWeb Census Project or the USGenWeb Lincoln County sites.
