Census Index Record--1870, Nebraska
Awhile back I mentioned that I had found a previously [to me] unknown cache
of census indices at our State Library. Those of you who have taken your
family search efforts to major regional resource centers [e.g., National
Archives in San Bruno; LDS Temple FHC in Westwood] know that census index
collections, even at such major depositories, are not necessarily complete.
For example, I have not been able to find Missouri 1860 or Missouri 1870 to
get lists of all St. Clairs in Kansas City at those times [access to these
In the meantime, looking for FLYNN and McLAUGHLIN in Lincoln in 1870, it was
not much more trouble to copy the pages containing SINCLAIR and ST. CLAIR to
share with the group. The intended audience for this information is not
exclusively the present list subscribers, but also any future readers looking
for Nebraska information in our archives.
Besides, the spread of Sinclairs to all corners of our world remains
fascinating. Nebraska in 1870 was pretty far West, and there were apparently
seven Sinclair representatives present:
Name County Census Page # Census
Sinclair Lancaster 124 Lincoln
Frank T. Sinclair Sarpy 265 Bellevue P.O.
James Sinclair Richarson 201 Falls City P.O.
Samuel Sinclair Sarpy 267 Bellevue P.O.
Thomas Sinclair Douglas 512 Omaha, 5th Ward
Alexander St. Clair Lancaster 157 Lincoln P.O.
J. W. St. Clair Douglas 404 Omaha 1st Ward
Wayman St. Clair Colfax 197 Schuyler P.O.
Most of these were in the southeastern part of the state, relatively close to
the Missouri stateline. No SINKLERs in the index.
Any bets that Frank and Samuel were brothers?
Have I heard the first name, Wayman, mentioned on this list?
Any bets on birthplaces of these? Ohio? Indiana? or?
Brief stories or links to these to share anyone?
