1895 State Census
Sumner County, KS
I have received a copy of the microfilm for the 1895 State Census for Sumner County from the Kansas State Historical Society. I will be typing transcriptions of it both for the society and for inclusion in the Sumner County page. It is quite detailed and will take some time to complete.
Note: The handwriting of part of this census was difficult to determine. Please check all possible alternate spellings of your surnames.
Conway Springs, in particular, was very difficult to read. The census taker apparently spelled some of the names phonetically, either because the person could not spell their own name or the census taker couldn't. Also the census taker wrote in a particularly spread out and undefined way. So.... try sounding out the names before deciding this "couldn't be" your ancestor.
Navy cities have surname indexes.
Red is statistical information included in the census.
