1830 U.S. Census, Cass County, Michigan, Ontwa Township

Names in the 1830 U.S. Census, County of Cass, Ontwa Township.

Transcribed by T.C. Wyman, December 13, 1999.

(Transcriber's Note: It should be noted that in several published indexes of the 1830 U.S. Census of Michigan, approximately one-half of the names below are mistakenly listed under the township of "Dexter, Cass County, Michigan". In fact, there is no Dexter Township in Cass County, nor was there ever such a township. After having closely examined the film, I am convinced that the enumerator did indeed write a highly ornate "Ontwa" township on the page which some others have identified as "Dexter".)

Division alloted to Enumerator Alexander H. Edwards.
