Legend for numerical data:
A = White Males 21 or over; B = Blacks over 16; C = Total Blacks; D = Horses
Abbreviations:  E F = Elk Fork of Red River, which flows southwards out of eastern Todd Co. (near the Logan Co. line, East of Guthrie) to join the Red River in Montgomery Co., TN; Spring Creek flows southwestwards out of central Todd Co. (just West of Guthrie) into Montgomery Co., TN, to join the West Fork of the Red River just before the latter joins the Red River, north of Clarksville. 
As expected, given his location, Shadrach drops off the Christian Co. tax rolls when Todd Co. is formed from Christian and Logan Cos. in 1820.
