This morning I had intended to share some information from the 1790 Federal Census of Ocracoke...but discovered that in the transcription I have the summary of the population (168 residents) and the sums I came up with (157 residents) didn't match. There were other discrepancies also.
So I have been trying to locate a readable copy of the original document. It is taking me longer than I expected. I will share my research (surnames, numbers of white males, white females, and slaves) whenever I can gather reliable figures. I think our readers will find them interesting.
In the meanwhile, enjoy your day!
