This page has been transcribed from and proofread against the microfilm copy of the 1850 US census.


This census transcription is annotated; names that appear like this include additional information on the individual, information that is not from the census but from other records, as explained on the main page. This information will show up in a popup box when you put the cursor over the name. Names that appear like this are linked to pages on this website where you can find additional information on the individual. More information on annotations.
This information is meant to be a guide only. Always refer to the original document for verification.


Note: Hancock Plantation's population was made up mostly of French-speakers. The census taker seemed not to be familiar with French or French names. Thus very few of the names are spelled correctly, most are a very rough approximation of what the name sounded like to an English speaker who did not know French. For example, Gagnon is written Gormeo. In the annotations in the popup boxes, or in the remarks, in parentheses, I have noted the actual spelling for those individuals for whom I have specific information. Please see also Information on French names in the 1850 US Census of Aroostook, Maine.
