School Enumeration 1844-1855

The file includes nearly 8,000 records of enumerations taken in various parts of Carroll County between 1844 and 1855.  Most records include both parent as well as child names, but some of the earlier ones give only head of household with numbers of children by age range.  Some name the child but not a parent.  Age of parent and/or child is sometimes included.  Township number and range of home are given, and sometimes number of voters or acres owned is included.  All information from each record has been entered, but the file is far from complete in coverage of years and all parts of the county; it is just what has been preserved.  The enumeration of the adults may be for purposes other than school enrollment, and children listed may have been of school age but not attending school.
