1790 CensusHopkintonHillsboroughCountyNew Hampshire
I have completed my research for the 1790 Census in Hopkinton. I have checked it twice and than a third time to see who is naughty or nice. Yes, a reference to that holiday only a few months away. I noticed an advertisement for Christmas ornaments already. Time flies when you’re lost in genealogical research. It reminds me I have very little time to complete my first draft to present to the family as a holiday treat. Only 98 days until Christmas Eve. I refer to the Christian holiday because our ancestors came to the colonies to practice their religion on their own terms.
Now back to what this blog is about. Who did I find in Hopkinton, New Hampshire in 1790? I found mainly the Chase surname. I have added Hannah Bean and Elizabeth Sargent to this census because they are two lines that I am searching for to confirm the family connection.
