Census Sunday: John C. Davidson in the 1859 Kansas Territory Census

This is the territorial census of Kansas from 1859. John C. Davidson was my husband’s 3rd great-grandfather. He was originally from Virginia, then moved to Missouri, and on to the Kansas Territory.

John C. Davidson, Date of Settlement 1855, 6 minors in the household, total of 8 people in the household

    So he was 65 years old in Kansas territory in 1859. That was an area of severe conflict about slavery in those years, I believe. I admired the historical fiction of Jane Smiley: The All-True Travels and Adventure of Lidie Newton. Full of suspense!ReplyCancel

    Actually, it says 55 – and that’s the year he arrived in Kansas. I read that book a number of years ago and loved it!!!ReplyCancel
