1870 Census Corrections

Contributed by:  Jim Newell (

The following “index” supposedly represents the households in the identified sections. However, I have done some extensive searching recently and have found that several of the pages appear to have been microfilmed “out of order.” I learned this in two ways: (1) some pages do not follow in sequence with family household numbers and by looking carefully, (2) I found that some families that should be continued on the next page were missing. So I have made a rather thorough review of the census pages, including the numbers written in the upper left where the original “page number” appears and have appended additional info for your use.

From the index page of the 1870 Sanford Co. census, page numbers for specific county subdivisions are listed as follows with my annotated notes to the right side:

Precinct #1: 276A-281A Big Pond P.O. Sequential households 1-74
Precinct #2: 282-286A Big Pond P.O. Lawrences Sequential households 1-61
Precinct #9: 287A-289B Big Pond P.O. Betts Sequential households 1-38
Precinct #10: 290A-298B Big Pond P.O. Trulls Sequential households 1-121
Precinct #11: 299A-310B Big Pond P.O. Wilsons Sequential households 1-162
Precinct #12: 311A-319A, 345A Big Pond P.O. Stricklands Page 345A doesn’t belong here Sequential households 1-121
Township 12, Range 16: 320A-323B Detroit P.O. These pages are out of order. The correct sequence should be:
320A-321B, 323A-323B, 322A Sequential households 1-46
Precinct #13: 324A-331A Big Pond P.O. Steens Sequential households 1-102
Township 13, Range 14: 332A-337B Beaverton P.O. Sequential households 1-76
Precinct #14: 338A-339B, 345B-349A Big Pond P.O. Milford Page 345A belongs here. The correct sequence should be:
338A-339B, 345A-349A Sequential households 1-88
Township 12, Range 15: 340A-344B Detroit P.O. These pages are out of order. The correct sequence should be:
343A-344B, 341A-342B, 340B, 340A Sequential households 1-74
Township 14, Range 14: 350A-354B Vernon, Moscow Sequential households 1-73
Township 12, Range 14: 355A-357B Pikeville Sequential households 1-42
Township 13, Range 15: 358A-366B Vernon, Moscow Pages 366A/B don’t belong here. The correct sequence should be:
358A-365B Sequential households 1-128
Township 13, Range 16: 367A-368B Moscow, Detroit Pages 366A/B belong here. The correct sequence should be:
367A-368B, 366A-366B Last two pages have Pine Springs #7 in the margin. Sequential households 1-41
Township 14, Range 15: 369A-375B Vernon, Moscow These pages are out of order. The correct sequence should be:
370A-375B, 369A-369B Sequential households 1-102
Township 14, Range 16: 376A-380A Vernon, Caledonia, Moscow Sequential households 1-69
Township 15, Range 15: 381A-385B Vernon Sequential households 1-68
Township 15, Range 16: 386A-394B Vernon, Caledonia These pages are out of order. The correct sequence should be:
