Oxford County, Maine, in the 1820 Census

Oxford County, Maine in the 1820 Census.

Click here to to return to the main page for the 1820 Census in Maine, which has links to the 9 Maine Counties then in existence and, from there, to the individual Towns of the County chosen.

If you don't see a town you expect to see in the list of towns below, check to see if the town was incorporated later than 1820 and was known then by another name; or if the town changed its name after incorporation; or if it's now located in another County.

Click on the town name for more information, including links to the original documents and alphabetical lists of heads of households.

Note: until the 1850 Census, enumerators listed names of heads of households only.
