Township No. 3, Second Range, Maine, in the 1820 Census; then in Oxford County; Franklin County as of 1838; now Rangeley Plantation and Rangeley

Township No. 3, Second Range, Oxford County, Maine, in the 1820 Census [T3 R2 BKP WKR].  In Franklin County as of 1838.   Now, presumably, the area comprising Rangeley Plantation and Rangeley.

[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.]

In the words of Enumerator Joseph H. Wardwell: "Lying North from No. 8".  Presumably the "No. 8" referred to what is now Byron, Maine.

Timeline: several townships were joined to form Rangeley Plantation in 1852, and from a portion of that, the town of Rangeley was formed in 1855.

Note: the 1820 Census lists the names of heads of households only; see the original sheets for a tally of everyone in each household by age range and gender.

Enumerated population of Township No. 3, 2nd Range in the 1820 Census:  23 inhabitants
