1880 Census List for “Deaf-Mutes”

This is a page section from the 1880 U.S. Federal Census “Schedules of Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes” representing a resident of Shenandoah County. According to the census, the “object of this Supplemental Schedule is to furnish material not only for a complete enumeration of deaf-mutes, but for an account of their condition.” The page notes that “Special pains should be taken to indicate all deaf-mutes from birth.” Emphasis theirs.
