Jarvis Gore, Maine, now Clifton, Maine, in Penobscot County, in the 1820 Census

Jarvis Gore, Maine, in Penobscot County, in the 1820 Census.  In 1849 Jarvis Gore became the town of Clifton, Maine.  See below for a list of the names of heads of households.

Note: the 1820 Census lists the names of heads of households only, with a tally of people within a household by age range and gender.

The enumeration of Jarvis Gore appears on Sheets 80 and 81.  (there's only one name at the very bottom of Sheet 80, and that person, Abijah Campbell is mistakenly attributed in some online resources as a resident of Carmel, Maine).  Use the arrow in the top left of the image to page forward.

Note: the enumerator used phonetic spelling and in at least one case - Bedel/Beddel, changed spellings.  Be sure to check the entire list for the person you're researching.
