Newburgh, Maine, then Newberg, in the 1820 Census

Newburgh, Maine, then Newberg, in Penobscot County, in the 1820 Census.  See the names of heads of households farther below.

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

The enumerated total population for Newberg in 1820 was 328.

The enumeration of Newberg consists of three sheets, two of which are erroneously indexed in some sources online as Hampden (with the people on those sheets shown as residents of Hampden, rather than Newburgh).
Sheet 71 - indexed in some places online as Hampden but should be indexed as Newberg
Sheet 72 - indexed in some places online as Hampden but should be indexed as Newberg
Sheet 73 - Newberg

Note: The list of heads of households below contains several cases of what appears to be phonetic spelling and misspelling; you may need to check the entire list.  Depending on what indexing site you use, some of these people will be shown as residents of Hampden, Maine.

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