Oregon Census Notes

The first Oregon census was enumerated in 1842 and included persons in Oregon Territory who lived south of the Columbia River in Oregon Country.

1845 census records for Oregon Territory were enumerated and survived for the following counties: Champoic (now Marion County), Clackamas, Clatsop, Tuality (now Washington County), and Yamhill.

1845-1846 census records for Oregon Territory were enumerated and survived for Tuality County (now Washington County).

1846 census records for Oregon Territory were enumerated and survived for Yamhill County only.

A special 1849 Oregon census which only enumerated males over age 21, was taken and survived intact.

Washington Territory was carved from Oregon Territory in 1853 and census enumerations were taken for large portions of Oregon Territory in 1853, 1854, 1855, 1856, 1857, 1858 and 1859.

*NOTE: Many of the early Oregon Territorial censuses listed above are included in the 1841-1890 Oregon Census Records Collection at Ancestry.

Oregon State Census records were enumerated every 10 years between 1865 and 1905.  These are sparse and incomplete.

The following Oregon State censuses survived:

1865 Benton, Columbia, Marion and Umatilla Counties.

1875 Lake, Umatilla and Wasco Counties.

1885 Linn and Umatilla Counties.

1895 Linn, Marion, Morrow and Multnomah Counties.

1905 Baker, Lane, Linn and Marion Counties.

*NOTE:  Many of the early Oregon State census records listed above are included in the 1841-1890 Oregon Census Records Collection at Ancestry.

Federal Oregon census records begin with the Oregon Territorial census taken in 1850. A Federal census was conducted every ten years thereafter. The following census years are available to the public:1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 & 1930. See Oregon Territory Census, 1850   & 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

1890 Federal census schedules were destroyed by a 1921 warehouse fire, however the 1890 Veterans and Widows census survived the fire and may provide a helpful census substitute. See A Fire Destroyed The 1890 Census, Bridging the 1890 Census Gap & 1890 Veterans Schedules at Ancestry.

Oregon

(Territory 1848.  Statehood 1859.)

Oregon Territory, established in 1848, originally held present day Idaho and  Washington along with some parts of Montana and Wyoming.

Beginning in 1850, the Oregon Trail running from Independence, Missouri, brought massive wagon trains westward.  These early settlers packed up everything they owned, sold what they couldn't take and began the long trek across the prairies and the Rocky Mountains, in search of an opportunity called "FREE LAND".  Large parcels of land were given to anyone who would live on and farm the land for four years.  People worldwide flocked to Oregon between 1840 and 1850 seeking land and increasing the population rapidly.  Many lives were lost on this long and perilous journey. See: 1792-1838 Arrivals in Oregon & 1852 Oregon Trail Deaths.
