1863 Septennial Census – Philadelphia Ward 3 – African Americans

Standard

Taxable inhabitants are generally defined as all males over the age of 21 or females who owned their own property (before 1848, only widowed or single woman could own property in their own name). The first enumeration law passed in 1779[1]. In 1800 the law included the enumeration of slaves[2]; an 1821 law included the deaf and dumb[3]; an 1836 law required the enumeration of the blind[4].
