1820 Clinton Census Annotated

In an effort to identify community of "Guinea" in Hyde Park we annotated the 1820 Federal Census for Clinton.

Slavery was abolished in 1827 in New York, so the 1820 Census is the last decennial census reflecting slavery.

What is today Hyde Par, was all part of Clinton in 1820.

Red underscore indicates persons of color identified as living in or as part of a white household. The census differentiates between "slave" and "free" and identifies by age range.

Page three of this set is clearly a concentration of persons of color.
