1860 Census of the Penobscot Nation

Source: 1860 Census of the Penobscot Nation, Maine State Archives.

This census of the Penobscot Indian Tribe was taken on "the Wednesday next before the first day of April AD 1860" by the Superintending School Committee of Old Town. The committee collected "the name and sex of each Indian therein and the age as near as we could determine by cautious and careful enquiry." They "arranged each family by itself and no person not a member of said is included therein."

A transcription of the 1858 Indian Island census is available at Ne-Do-Ba. The 1868 census is available here.
