Colonial, Territorial, and District Censuses

The District of Columbia was created from Prince George's, and Montgomery counties in Maryland, and Fairfax County in Virginia in 1790. Apparently, no censuses are available from Maryland or Virginia in those counties prior to 1790 in what is now the District of Columbia.
