INDEX
1790 CENSUS ONTARIO COUNTY NY (PART)


The following is an index of the heads of households in the three districts of Ontario County that included what is now Yates County. Ontario was the parent of all New York counties west of the Pre-emption Line. The Yates County towns of Italy, Middlesex and Potter were within the 1790 district of Canandaigua; Benton, Jerusalem, Milo and Torrey were in the 1790 district of Jerusalem; and Barrington and Starkey within the 1790 district of Erwin. It should be pointed out that no resident who lived in the Gore between the Old and New Pre-emption Lines is listed on this census; they were essentially in a no-man's land between Ontario and Montgomery Counties and were missed altogether. The territory involved includes the settlements at what are now Geneva and Watkins Glen, as well as the Universal Friends' settlement at City Hill in Torrey, a total of at least 500 persons.

A map showing how the county 's modern towns were divided into districts is available.

The index gives the head of household, surname first; then the page number from the National Archives microfilm; then a three-letter abbreviation for the district. The names are spelled as they are on the handwritten census.
