1870 (9th) Federal Census - Clay County, Florida

Microfilm Roll #128; Record Group M593

Comments about the 1870 Clay Co., FL Census: This county was filmed with pages out of order. To help mitigate the confusion this causes, I will be adding these pages in order of the County Page Number. In addition, I know of a few families that were enumerated twice and will mark them also.

* = Hard to read or decipher handwriting (only applies to word immediately in front of the *). I used my best guess and apologize if they are wrong.

? = still hard to read, but I gave an alternative in the comments.
