The 1864 Territorial Census
Names Beginning With "X, Y & Z"

The 1864 Census was the first census for the territory of Arizona. The census took place in April of that year. This database was taken from the original cursive records. Additional records are available---an edited transcript taken from the original records and a typewritten copy. This database will differ slightly from the edited and typewritten copies. My interpretation of the cursive writing is occasionally different than previous transcriptions. Capital letters are particularly difficult to decipher---check various surnames using alternative first letters.......

The Arizona Territory was divided into three districts. To date, this database includes only records for district one. This covers from the Gila River south and east of the communities along the western boundary in the region of the Colorado River. The following communities appear on the district one portion of the census:

Apache Pass
Cerro Colorado Mine
Mowry Mine Works
Pima Village
San Antonio Mine
San Pedro

Notes on several of the above communities:

Mowry Mine: "Having misunderstood the directions of the Marshal the names of 107 women and children, incident at this place, were omitted from the list."

Apache Pass & San Pedro: "Incomplete, will send in supplement by the 1st" Supplement was not included in the census, and has not been found. Possibly, these section of the census was never completed.

Cerro Colorado Mines: " Forty two Papago Indians, with their families, are laboring at this time. Also eight tame Apaches."
