Brooke County was created in 1797 from part of Ohio County and was named in honor of Robert Brooke, Governor of Virginia from 1794-1796. The county is sandwiched between the Ohio River and the State of Pennsylvania. This 1840 census is a transcription of the names of the head of households, the age and gender of those living within the household as well as some of the personal data, i.e. blind, deaf, etc. The military pensioners are given with their ages if listed on the census. Each of the households is shown with the occupation of the various members such as farming, commerce, mining, manufacturing or even navigation on canals, lakes and rivers. The schools and academies are shown with the number of scholars and the number of those in school at public charge.
