1880 Perry County Ky Census
Transcribed & submitted by Lynda Combs Gipson & Jimmie "CrashedOne" Combs
 

We have tried to transcribe exactly what the enumerator put on the census forms 
when he took the information from the people. 
And if names had different spellings we put a note in the comments. 

Dist #1 you will see a house number and a family number (e.g., 1-1/1) we put the /1
in so we could tell Dist #1 apart from Dist#2 in the index and is not a part of the original census.

In 1884 Knott Co., was formed from parts of Breathitt, Floyd and Perry Counties.  
So if you find a relative in the 1880 Perry and can't find them in the 1900 Perry, 
then most likely they didn't move,  the county changed.
