When the 1820 Federal Census of Virginia was microfilmed nine pages were accidentally missed. The missing pages were from seven different counties (Accomac, Monongalia, Prince Edward, Pittsylvania, Randolph, Shenandoah, and Southampton), and reference over 175 individuals. Included in the article are the names, county, and page number references for those who were missed. The list can also be accessed online at the Shenandoah County GenWeb Project.
