Decatur County Kansas
1885 Census

The census was transcribed by Luanne Henthorn from the microfilm located at the Decatur County Last Indian Raid Museum.   For copies of this information you can email the Museum.  They have a small fee for research time and copies. 

The Kansas State Board of Agriculture conducted a census of the state in 1885.  The census lists all members of household by name, including age, sex, race or color, and state or country of birth. Also listed: where from to Kansas (state or country) and military record (condition of discharge, state of enlistment, letter or name of company or command, number of regiment or other organization to which attached, arm of the service, and name of military prison if confined in one).  The Agricultural section lists such information as number of acres in farm, number of acres under cultivation, irrigation, fencing, machinery, crops planted, dairy products produced or made, livestock, orchards, number of dogs, and much more. 

These were all hand written and very hard to read.  There are questionable spellings along with names that can not be deciphered.  Luanne has worked hard to transcribe them as accurately as possible and  transcribed them as they are in the census so be sure to check for alternative spellings.
