Complimented by a Mercer County ancestry chart and a map of Mercer's progeny, this publication contains an exceptional transcription of the 1850 Census of Mercer County. Each entry includes the family number, name of household member, age, sex, occupation [when applicable], value of real estate, and place of birth. Compiled from original manuscripts found at the National Archives in Washington D.C., slave schedules were originally separated from the regular census. The transcriber copied the material from the slave schedules and inserted it into the proper family. So, if the Head of Household was also a slave owner, you will find the number of slaves owned by the family. The transcriber also indicates other spellings of surnames [for instance: Crofford became Crawford.].

Example:
Charles ODELL: #384, Age: 24, Married, Schoolteacher, b. in TN.
