Other than Atchison county, which is my primary focus for The Beyond Kin Project, I need to organize the names I’m looking for elsewhere. However, since there is copy/pasting involved – dates without location indicate Atchison county. The Family Search PID numbers are included – while they might change because of merging, it should still give a link to the remaining record. I’m not adding locations in non-slave states, because I’m looking for evidence of slaves.

  • CAPITALS = positively identified as a slave-holding family
  • Year alone = Regular census schedule
  • SS or SP = Slave Schedule or Slave Page
