Wisconsin Ancestors - Heads of Households
town of Polk, Washington county during the 1846 census

2019 by John Von Haden  All rights reserved.

Listed below are the heads of households in the census in the order that they appeared in the census. The original spelling is on the left and updated information is on the right.

This list was last updated on December 24, 2020.  Return to Genealogy Home Page.

  • The first column gives the dwelling number, family number and name of the head of the household as recorded by the census taker.
  • The second (Section) column gives the section number within the township where I suspect the family resided. This can be helpful to follow the census taker's route if you want to convincer yourself that a misspelled family name is really your family.
  • The third column shows a more correct (not saying definitive) spelling of the surname. The surnames are in bold when the census taker's surname spelling differs from the corrected spelling.
  • The checkbox is there if you'd like to order a family group sheet for this family.
  • The last column gives some details about this family.
