Dexter, Maine, in the 1820 Census

Dexter, Maine, in Penobscot County, in the 1820 Census.

Note: An extra sheet of the names of heads of households in Dexter may be indexed in some online resources under Bangor, Maine.  The names of heads of households on this extra sheet are shown in a separate list, farther below.

The 1820 Census lists the names of heads of households only with a tally of everyone in the household by age range and gender.

The enumeration of Dexter consists of Sheets 17-20, but the link shown is missing Sheet 19. Sheet 19, shown here, is misindexed in some resources online as belonging to Bangor, Maine.

The lists of heads of households below contains several cases of what appears to be phonetic spelling and misspelling; be sure to review the lists in their entirety.

If you notice errors or if you have information to share on any of the people listed below, please leave a comment.

Two lists below
1) names of heads of households on the three sheets indexed online correctly as Dexter
2) names of heads of households on a sheet of Dexter residents erroneously indexed in some online resources as Bangor, Maine
