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

2019 - 2021 by John Von Haden  All rights reserved.

Listed below are the heads of households in this census and related information about them and their family.


This list was last updated on December 7, 2021.  Return to Genealogy Home Page.

Descriptions of columns in the table below:

  1. Head of household - The first column gives the name of the head of the household as recorded by the census taker. The surname is in bold when the census taker's surname spelling differs from the corrected spelling (see third column).
  2. Section - Each township is comprised of 36 sections each of which is one square mile. This 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 convince yourself that a misspelled family name is really your family.
  3. Corrected Name - This column shows a more correct (not saying definitive) spelling of both the first name and the surname of the head of the household.
  4. Occupation - The occupation of the head of the household.   Territorial censuses do not list occupations, so I looked ahead in time to find this person in the 1850 or 1860 census and use that occupation if found.
  5. Church - The general denomination or church affiliation of the family, inferred by where family members are buried or by where church baptisms, confirmations, marriages and/or burials are recorded.   In these early years, if a specific church is listed, it might not have been organized yet.
  6. The checkbox is there if you'd like to order a family group sheet for this family.  If interested, check the box and then come back up to the top of this page and click on the long, light gray button.
  7. Notes - This column gives some details about this family.
