Johns Creek Families
1820 Floyd County Census
The following two pages [18 & 19] are reproduced as recorded.
It appears from other information that the census recorder stopped at each of the farms as he went up Johns Creek. These records are posted in connection with research on a Johns Creek Map drawn by Rev. M. T. Burris (1828-1904). He was reared on the Lesley Settlement from the age of about six. The Lesley family at the time of the 1820 census was headed by Robert Lesley (1763-1822): shown on the second page below. Following his death in 1822, his widow and older sons continued to live in the area.
The 1820 census contains
the following information in its first 14 columns:
Living on the farm of Robert Lesley were 7 males, including him, and 6 females, including his wife. Five members of the family are listed as "engaged in agriculture." Living in an adjacent farm were a daughter, Rachel, with her husband, Thomas Pinson, and one young son.
