The year 1850 brought a new kind of census. Not only was it the first regular US Census to name all people in a household, but this was the first time the Agricultural and Manufacturing Census was taken on a widespread basis. Although this second census names only head of household, often times when an individual was missed on the regular census, he would appear on either of these two census reports. Unfortunately, many of these Agricultural and Manufacturing Census records have not survived, but the existing ones yield unique information about how people lived. There are forty-six columns of information, six of which are transcribed here. The six are: name of owner, improved acreage, unimproved acreage, cash value of the farm, value of farm implements and machinery, and value of livestock.
