The Complete Rainwaters in the 1850 Census

A few notes about the layout of these records:
The first line of each record gives the following information: District, county, state, page number, line number, dwelling number, family number. I always use the stamped page numbers found in the upper right hand corner of the original census pages. These are stamped on every other page, so the pages without numbers have the number from the preceeding page plus the letter B. The second and successive lines give the following information: Name, age, gender and race, occupation, value of real estate owned if stated, birthplace, miscellaneous information.

Printable blank forms for the 1850 census are available from Ancestry.com.

Unless otherwise noted, these census records were transcribed from the microfilmed originals, M432 series. The index sources for this transcription are the printed all-name index volumes available at the Dallas Public Library.

* Kay Ohana reports that the check mark in the "married within the year" column to be incorrect, and notes that in this ED, recorded by William F. Brooks, the "married within the year" column appears to have been used almost at random, often checking children, obviously too young to be married. Equally, it should be noted typically both husband and wife should be checked if they were married within the year, which is not the case in this record. Additionally, the final three children in this record belong to Jane Rainwater (Rash), not to Burrell and Elizabeth.

South Carolina

The census enumerators of South Carolina indicated the race of only non-white individuals. The most common designations were B-black, M-mulatto and V-meaning unknown. It is reasonable to assume that an individual whose race is not designated is probably white, but this is not entirely certain.
