Northampton  County
Residents in 1890

      The County Population......84,220


The information contained here is taken from a Census Directory that was published in 1891. It lists "the inhabitants of Northampton County as furnished by the Census Bureau at Washington, D.C. in the Eleventh U. S. Census,  1890". Since most of the 1890 census was burned in a fire, we're very lucky  to have this. The county is now 99% done.  There are just a few small communities to be added.   Approximately 83,000 names are now online.
