The 1870 United States census was the ninth census in the United States and is the third census to include and name all persons living in each household. The official enumeration day was June 1, 1870. Unfortunately, as in the 1850 and 1860 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.
Images used in these transcriptions were originally copied from National Archives and Records Administration microfilm, number M593, RG29 (1761 rolls). 1870 images and index were provided by Ancestry.com.
Items included on the 1870 census form included the following: name, age as of the last birthday, sex, color, birthplace, occupations of those over 15, real estate value, value of personal estate, and whether the father and mother were foreign born. Dwellings and families were numbered in the order of visitation and included the name of every person that was living with the family.
The 1870 census included a total of 4433 Titus and possibly related family names. Images of Minnesota family numbers 5 and 8 contained in the index could not be found.
