1850 Federal Population Census

Transcribed and shared with GHOTES by Nanette Davis.

Here is my transcription of page 304B of the 1850 NH census. It is possible that Hog Island families can be found on page 304A --in fact I know the Fletchers who are listed did live there but it only complicates things to include the maybes. This page 304B is clearly filled in as '' Hog Island'' and then there is a note written in pencil on the line next to Charles Kelly but this may have been written in much later.  Nanette Davis
