|My reason for compiling these tables is that I had made
so many futile searches for individuals I knew had to be in Franklin
County in 1860. And sure enough, there are many pages missing from
the images online at Ancestry.com. So, to save you some frustration,
I'm sharing this information with you — and, of course, with Ancestry.com.
Hopefully they will remedy the situation (an email to that effect from
as many people as possible could get this fixed sooner, rather than later).
The Census Bureau web site indicates that there are three rolls for
Franklin Co., OH, in 1860. The third roll (M653-964) is said to consist
of the five Wards of Columbus, but as we see (below), the roll contains
some townships, as well. The other two rolls (M653-962 and -963)
are described only as consisting of townships "excluding the city of Columbus,"
so I've no clue as to which roll, below, is -962 and which is -963, nor
can I tell if the pages, as listed, have reached the end of each roll.
If anyone knows the Roll Numbers and knows the last page number of each
roll, please share that information with me.
||number of page images online at Ancestry.com
|Stamped Nos. =
||the stamped page numbers; usually considered
to be the page numbers; stamped on front sides only (A indicates
front side, B indicates back side)
|Page Nos. =
||the original page numbers written in by the enumerator, on front and
back sides of pages
|Penciled Nos. =
||penciled numbers obviously added later, on front and back sides of
||pages missing from the online images at Ancestry.com, at least as of
2 Jun 2002 [rechecked 22 Jul 2004, still missing]
|UPDATE (19 Oct 2007): it
looks like the missing pages have appeared. I haven't had time to
check the actual page numbers (and probably won't bother), but the following
locations have appeared that weren't there before:
Alton, Dublin, Gahanna, Groveport,
Albany, and Rome.
