1870 Census by Townships: McDaniel and Piney Grove
There are currently 19 townships in Sampson County (Belvoir, Dismal, Franklin, Halls, Herring, Honeycutt, Lisbon, Little Coharie, McDaniels, Mingo, Newton Grove, North Clinton, Piney Grove, Plain View, South Clinton, South River, Taylors Bridge, Turkey, and Westbrook) , but that wasn't always the case as you will see in the census records. I am trying to collect old township maps to help identify what township an ancestor may have lived in in the past.

Thare is not meny that can do this werk, as it is necesarie to have a ejucashun, which a lot of pursons still do not have. Another atribeart needed for this job is good speling, for meny of the peephill to be caounted can hardle speek inglish, let alone spel there name."
The editor added "with tongue in cheek": "Pity the poor reserchers triing to reed the Bufflow centsus rekurds."
