The Census data shown is for the year 1850 as reported in the 1860 Census.

See www2.census.gov/prod2/decennial/documents/1860e-06.pdf (pages 230-231).

Why are there differences between the Census and our own figures?

Here is an explanation state by state:

  • Tennessee:
    1. Great Western and Atlantic Railroad (TN) - As we have explained elsewhere, 16.5 miles of this railroad were in Tennessee by 1850 so we have to transfer them from Georgia.
