In the 1820 census for Monroe County the census data appears on the odd numbered pages 191-217 . There are about 50-55 entries per page for a total of 723 families. The first and last pages are very difficult to read. The other pages are not too bad except for a special problem with pages 197 and 199. These pages apparently came loose from the book and were then secured in place with a strip of tape placed vertically from top to bottom. On page 197 this strip sits right on top of the last column of data for female family members (those females older than 45). On page 199 the strip appears to be between the last two columns and partially obscures both columns. On page 197 I have chosen to place an x in the entry for females over 45. There are a couple of places where something is visible and one might make an informed guess. I don't wish to make this guess because of the high probability of error. On page 199 it is possible to read many entries in the last two columns, but I placed an x on some that were unclear.
On page 215 a few entries are labeled with place of residence. The towns named are Tompkinsville, Martinsburgh, Jamestown and Pikesville. I have used the first letter of the name as a label.
Thanks to Mike Fraser for proofreading and some additional data entry.
