RED RIVER COUNTY IN 1890
The Year of the Missing Census
by Johnie Lee
Research on this book began about 2003, and dozens of sources
have been searched in the years since. Among the sources searched
were the tax records of 1890, as well as marriage and divorce
records, deeds, criminal and civil court case files, survey records,
marks and brands records, cemetery and death records, newspapers,
probate files, commissioners court minutes and church records,
just to name a few. The location of each source is noted, if
additional information is needed. The book, which contains 253
pages, is a perfect bound card stock cover, with a few photos
from the era. Also included are business ads and letterheads
of various businesses which were operating in the county at the
time. The index contains over 5900 entries, and approximately
12,000 entries in the census section, listing people living in
Red River County in 1890. Some of these individuals were found
in as many as five different sources, all listed for future reference.
The first section of the book contains several stories about
life in the county in 1890. Histories were written based on
research done from the 1890 era, and include such topics as Statistics
from the 1890 census, lists of businesses in the county, histories
of roads, railroads, post offices, schools, polling places, newspapers,
churches, fraternal organizations, among others.
