United States Census Military and Naval ForcesEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Census population schedules for military forts, bases, and Navy ships were often placed near the end of the rest of the regular population schedules for a county. For a few census years the military and naval forces (and diplomatic consulates) are on separate rolls of microfilm. The same was done with schedules for American Indians, and institutions (jails, hospitals, and insane asylums).
