The 1820 Federal Census of Logan County, Kentucky Introduction
[So far, only the three Russellville pages are finished and online.]
Like many early censuses, the Logan County 1820 census suffers from the pages having been unbound, flattened, and rebound into larger books at the National Archives, which has put the pages out of order.  In particular, "two-page spreads" are no longer the adjacent pages they once were.  Fortunately, with Logan County we have a key to the original page order in the form of a tally page where the enumerator lists the pages by number, along with a tally for each column on the page.  By matching the tallies along the bottom of each census page to this tally page list and arithmetically finding it's match, it is possible to correctly pair up the disordered pages and place them in their original order, which is nothing like their order on the microfilm or, consequently, their order online at Ancestry.com or Genealogy.com.

The major problem caused by this dis-ordering of the original pagination is that at both Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com all of the Logan County images are grouped as being in "Russellville," but only 5 of the actual 26 images (3 of the 24 census pages) of the Logan County census are of Russellville.  Here again, it is the tally that makes it clear that this is the case.  Below is a Table showing the Logan County tally, with links to extractions of the individual pages.  In addition to this extraction of the Logan County Census pages, I am also compiling an index (as yet, unfinished):

Index to the 1820 Logan County Census.

Aggregate of Population in the County of Logan on the First Monday in August 1820
