Biographical/Historical:     State censuses were first compiled in 1845 and every ten years after until 1945.  The state census supplemented the federal census carried out at the end of each decade and was used for the determination of legislative electoral districts.  The fourth census was authorized in 1875 (Chap. 2042, Laws) and the Secretary of State was responsible for its coordination.  The state census was abolished in 1949 (Senate Joint Resolution #46, 1949).  The federal census has therefore served as Florida's census record since 1950.
Summary:     This series contains the returns of the fourth state census of Florida conducted in 1875.  It is incomplete; it contains only the state census records of Alachua County.  The information recorded in the returns includes the name, age at last birthday, sex, and race of all those persons listed.  For some entries, other information is provided including occupation, the value of real estate, the value of personal property, the number of acres planted in cotton, the number of acres planted in cane, and the number of orange trees.
