1880 Dare Co., North Carolina Census

This census was extracted from Ancestry's census images by Marla Beasley.  No attempt was made to correct mistakes in the spelling of the names thus you should look for all conceivable variations of the surnames.

Several new elements appeared in the 1880 census from previous census records, namely, a statement of the relationship of each person to the head of the family and an expressed statement of marital status, called "civil condition".  The enumerators started taking the census on June 1st.

About twenty columns were used in the original census but the columns used for our purposes are:

1) House - numbered in the order of visitation.
2) Family - numbered in the order of visitation.
3) Names of all persons whose place of abode on June 1, 1880 was in this family.
4) Race - White was indicated with a "w", Black with a "b", Mulatto with an "m", Chinese with a "c" and Indian with an "i".
5) Sex - Male was indicated with an "m"; female with an "f".
6) Age at last birthday prior to June 1, 1880; if under 1 year then months were given in fractions; i.e. 3/12.
7) Month of Birth - If born within the census year then the month was given.  This will be found  in the comments column.
8) Relationship of each person to the head of the family, i.e. son, daughter, wife, etc.
9) Marital Status - Whether single (S), married (M) or divorced (D) or widowed (W)
10) Occupation - the trade of each person, male or female
11) Whether a person could Read and Write
12) Birth Place of Person - naming the state or territory of the U.S. or the country
13) Birth Place of the Father of the Person - naming the state or territory of the U.S. or the country
14) Birth Place of the Mother of the Person - naming the state or territory of the U.S. or the country
15) Remarks - This column will be used to indicate whether a person attended school during the year, was insane, idiotic, blind, deaf & dumb, crippled, etc.
