Compiled by Hugh MacDougall
This information was compiled from the Federal and State Census records for Otsego County,
New York, from 1790 to 1925. There are inevitable errors, some resulting from poor quality
microfilm images of the census records, others from transcription errors of all sorts.
Users finding errors of any sort are invited to communicate with Hugh MacDougall, so that
they can be corrected.

The data sheets for the 1890 United States Federal Census were destroyed by fire;
about all that remains are sheets for a Special Census conducted of surviving Veterans
