1863 Septennial Census – Philadelphia Ward 9 – African Americans

Standard

One draw back in the methodology of the Census is that it was completed based on alphabetical order. No addresses are attached. However, the wards are broken down into divisions (this system is still in place today) so you can get a general sense of pockets of African Americans. In some wards and in many divisions there are no African Americans residing.
