1885 Lincoln County Kansas Census

Golden Belt Township

compiled by Diana and William R. Sowers
copyright 1998
Notes:
1- The census taker only put Margaret as the town/post office on the first page.
2- The census taker did not number the dwellings/families consecutively. Each one was given a "1."
3- Spelling was a problem in this township. Thus names such as Wiliam, Emley, and Allas may or may not have been truly spelled this way.
4- A few times we noticed what appeared to be wives listed on different pages from their husbands.

Township: Golden Belt

Nearest Post Office: Margaret
