Title

June 30, 1870 Carson Census

Description

This document is an 1870 census recording of the citizens residing in the Myrtle Creek Precinct of Douglas County, Oregon, where Letitia resided after the death of David Carson. This is page six of the document, which shows Letitia, "Tisha" Carson, and her son Jackson Carson living in Douglas county as housekeepers and farmers. Letitia's age is 52, and Jackson's is listed as 19, though other documentation asserts he was born in 1849, which would put him closer to 20 or 21 at the time of the census. Letitia's race is listed as Black, and Jackson's is listed as Mulatto. The value of Letitia's personal estate is listed as $625, and her value of real estate is listed as $1000. Letitia's place of birth is listed as Kentucky, and Jack's appears to be listed as Eutah (Utah) Territory, which is incorrect as he was born in Benton County, Oregon Territory. The other categories such as education, parentage, marriage, and constitutional relation are left blank. It is signed by assistant marshal John Fullerton on June 30th, 1870.
