The 1860 United States census was the eighth census in the United States and is the second census to include and name all persons living in each household. The official enumeration day was June 1, 1860. Unfortunately, as in the 1850 census, the census questionnaire did not indicate the relationships between each member of the household. There could therefore be brothers and sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, etc., living with the families that would not be readily identifiable.
