Infirmary Residents found in the U.S. Census Records 1880-1940

The residents living in the county infirmary or “poor house” were recorded in the U.S. census records. The residents were referred to as “inmates”, as were residents of hospitals or orphans' homes. Starting in the 1820 census, the head of household or superintendent of the infirmary is also listed, often with his family members, who also live on the property.
