According to Ellen Marie's summary the population consisted of 135 whites, 2 free persons of color, and 31 slaves. Adding her columns I get 29 free white males 16 & up, 28 free white males under 16, and 69 free white females (29 + 28 + 69 = 126, not 135). She lists 31 slaves, as in the summary, however she does not specify any free persons of color.
I located an on-line transcription of the 1790 census for Carteret County (Ocracoke was moved to Hyde County in 1845). All of the names and numbers that Ellen Marie lists are included in the Carteret transcription, although no free persons of color are noted, and Ocracoke is not listed separately from the rest of the county.
Only nine surnames are present on Ocracoke in 1790:
I will share more census information in future blogs.
