1855 CENSUS of the TOWN of MARION

Various Pages

Following is a partial transcription of Marion, Wayne County, NY 1855 census taken from hard copies located at the Wayne County Department of History in Lyons, NY. Page numbers refer to the typewritten 1855 Census, and the numbers before the names correspond to order in which the census was taken. The latter is important when trying to determine who lived next door to whom and if they may have been related.

Information given below includes the name, gender, age, relationship to head of house, occupation, and place of birth, (NY county, Country, or other state) for each individual. When all members of the household have the last same name it is not repeated. Conversely, if last names differ within a family they are shown. Finally, wherever information is known by the transcriber brackets [  ] are used showing information that is not part of the original census. Blank brackets indicate unreadable data. Please note that some people did not give their ages, and others did not give their names, so these were not typographical errors.In all cases it is hoped that this donated material may help others to find their Marion, Wayne County ancestry.

Juliette Pratt later md. William See, son of Abram See who was family number 355. Checking back to your Pratt page, Amos is there alright.

The 1855 census book apparently is apparently just a dilapidated or burnt fragment, only three towns transcribed by the historical society and those with gaping holes. Abram's brother John should be listed in there but is not on the surviving parts. However, Abram's son Truman See is found:

1855 Marion (Wayne) NY, transcription
fam. #153
Kellogg, Norman 39 b. Wayne farmer
MaryAnne 39 wife, b. Wayne
Elizabeth 15 dau b. Wayne
Frank 3 son b. Wayne
See, Truman 21 hired man b. Wayne farmer

Since Truman married a wife Elizabeth who was consistently in later censuses 5 or 6 years his junior, I'm willing to bet a quarter that she was Norman Kellogg's daughter.
