The 1820 Census lists the names of heads of households only. Refer to the original enumeration sheets for a tally of people within a household by age range and gender.
Note: Handwriting in the right margin of Sheet 104 indicates that a subsequent sheet is missing. In addition, the other sheets have areas of smearing, rendering many names illegible.
On a page with tallies for several towns in Penobscot County, Brewer's enumerated population was shown as 734, but it's not known whether or not this figure includes additional people, if any, tallied on the missing sheet.
The enumeration of Brewer consists of at least Sheets 102-104, with the presumption that more names were recorded on Sheet 105, along with an aggregate of the individual tallies of households. Sheet 73 may be the missing piece.
Please look over the entire list when hunting for an ancestor, as many names are obscured and may have been deciphered incorrectly. If you notice errors or if you have information to share on any of the people listed below, please leave a comment.
Heads of Households - those that appear on Sheets 102-104 only - be aware there may have been additional households recorded on the missing sheet. See the second list with names from Sheet 73, which may be the missing sheet.
