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.

Please spread the word. I hope this information will be useful for someone. But more importantly I’m trying to find other genealogists that share my interest in African Americans in Philadelphia and/or New Jersey in the 18th and 19th centuries.  Below is Ward 8.

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].

Standard

Septennial Census Returns, 1779-1863This series contains returns for a census conducted every seven years, enumerating taxpaqyers for the purpose of determining representation in the General Assembly. Only about 11% of the original recordds have survived and the only informationa provided in most of the surviving returns is the name of the taxpayer, though occasionally the occupation is also given. The style and details of enumeration varies for the differrent counties and in different periods of time. All counties have lists of “Taxable inhabitants” and “freemen”, while others also include “inmates”. Commencing in 1800, the age, name, gender and place of residence of each slave is also frequently given and occasionally the name of the slave’s owner. Last names of slaves are usually not given because changes in ownership would have altered these over time. A few returns for Franklin County (1828, 1835, 1842), Columbia County (1821), Mifflin County (1821), and Philadelphia City (1863) provide the name, age and gender of deaf, dumb and blind inhabitants.

1863 Septennial Census – Philadelphia Ward 1- African Americans

Standard

I hope someone will find this information useful. I've compiled the names of every African American listed in the 1863 census. This is only for Ward 1 in Philadelphia. There are additional wards to add and I will do so over time.

I've combed through the 1863 census and did not find any of my ancestors. The septennial census was conducted with Pennsylvania citizens who were eligible to be taxed. This would probably mean land or property owners. So another confirmation that my ancestors were very humble. If anyone knows of others who are researching African Americans in Philadelphia in the 18th and 19th century, please let me know. Even if you do not have any ancestors in Philadelphia during this time but love history, contact me.

 

Background:

While Pennsylvania did not conduct state censuses, beginning in 1779, the state did make enumerations of inhabitants every seven years for tax purposes and to determine representation in state government. These counts are called the septennial censuses.

They Crossed Over – Born Enslaved, Died Free

Below are a list of my ancestors who were born enslaved but lived past the end of the Civil War to live free. I wonder how many never made it over with them or how many they lost never to find along the way.

In many cases, these ancestors place me three generations FROM being enslaved. Homage paid to those known and unknown. As James Baldwin said, these ancestors bought and paid for my passage as a citizen to the United States. I owe my country no me!

Catherine Little Death Certificate Catherine is my 4th Great Grandmother.

There is a portion of her death certificate that is barely visible. It states that her occupation was a Housekeeper, that she was born in Philadelphia, that she resided in the 7th Ward at the time of her death. It also lists her address and as best as I can tell that is No. ??? So. 12th Street.

Catherine was buried on January 21st, 1871 in the Lebanon Cemetery. Lebanon is now defunct and all remains have been moved to Eden Cemetery, in Collingdale, Pennsylvania. Lebanon Cemetery is where Octavius V Catto was also buried. Here is a link to a collection with some of Catto’s paper’s including the returns of the Lebanon Cemetery the week Octavius Catto was murdered in the Philadelphia Riots.

The undertaker was H.S. Duterte at No. 632 Lombard Street.
