Selected Dekalb Co. Census Records

Between the years 1991 and 1993, I visited the Wallace State College Library in Hanceville, Alabama and was able to transcribe census records which concerned the surnames I am researching in the Dekalb Co. Tn area.

**I've begun adding more census records as time permits. I have been able to get to Wallace College and view the microfilm for the yrs 1850 and 1860 of the Dekalb Co. TN Census during my study of the 6th District. This is where my Pittmans and Adcock Lines lived along with several other families which include names such as Cantrell Capshaw Cotton Dunham/Durham Emory Fisher Manning Millstead Meggerson Parish and Webb.
