Census Returns of Cass county

[There is a table of  Census returns Heads of Families, males between 6-16, males under 6, males over 16. females between 6 and 15, females over 15, deaf and dumb, lunatics, idiots, whole number of slaves, free persons of color [only 11 in all of Cass county, 5 in Cartersville, 1 in Stamp Creek, 4 in Cassville, 1 in 17th District.]

Remarks—In the 4th district, near Cartersville, I find a singular fact.  Mr. B. H. Conyers owns two slaves—“Uncle Harry and Aunt Milly” who are the parents of twenty-six healthy children—all born at single births; the mother is about 48 years of age, and looks as healthy and stout as though she were thirty.

Col. Lewis Tumlin owns a negro woman, the mother of several children—three of which were born at one birth; one of them died when one year old.

J. A. Maddox, Census taker.
