Do You Know that you can search just the Census Records on the site by using the three county level Census  buttons in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page

You can further limit your search by choosing the find all words option and entering a year or township name along with your surname. Remember that alternate spellings of surnames WILL affect your search results.

Post Offices in Ridgebury Township  in 1870  -  Residents in Ridgebury Township picked up their mail at the Bentley Creek PO or the Ridgebury PO.  There was no rural delivery until 1903. Be sure to read You Gotta Know the Territory for more information to help you understand this area and time. For individual pages the Post Office will be indicated, and it gives you information on the part of the township in which your subject lived. Bentely Creek PO would serve the southern part of the township and the Ridgebury PO served the north, probably located in or near the village of Gillett. Households on this page received mail at the Bentley Creek Post Office
Census records are very often difficult to read because of handwriting, microfilm quality, and spelling issues. Our early census takers were not as well educated as we'd like them to have been, and even the people bearing the names often could not spell them with the same consistency we are accustomed to in this era. The census taker wrote what he believed he heard as well as he could. These have been transcribed for you to the very best or our abilities given the difficulties mentioned. Please be tolerant of what you would consider "mistakes." If you can recognize the names you are looking for, then it is a success. If not, then you may want to find a place where you can view the originals so that you can judge for yourselves. Excessive attention to outmoded spelling issues is the sign of a beginner in family research. Those of you who have been at this a while are well aware of the "spelling errors" in our early records and have learned to deal with them. If you have a comment that you think is important for a particular entry send it to me with the EXACT page URL and I will place your note at the bottom of the page.
