Ancestry has transcribed the New Jersey (USA) 1895 State Census. This is exciting to genealogists because it breaks the span of 1880 to 1900 left by the loss of our 1890 Federal Census. Although NJ lumped age groups that year (20-60, for example) it's a huge gain, nonetheless.
Are you aware of any other states who took a mid-decade Census, and if so, have these been transcribed?
I found, in Ancestry's 1895 NJ index, 77 first names with TOZER surnames, and a few more of what I thought could be Tozer variants (either changed spellings, or spelling errors). You must either subscribe to Ancestry or use it at a participating library if you want the full facts; but meanwhile, you can at least get an idea as to which names lived in what county. What follows my @ symbols below indicates the 9 counties these 77 Tozers lived in.
Cam=Camden; Cu=Cumberland; Es=Essex; Glo=Gloucester; Hu=Hunterdon; Me=Mercer; Mo= Morris; Sa=Salem; Un=Union
I changed nothing, but did indicate some questions in parentheses, such as spellings I doubt. My purpose is to start discussion of facts readers know already, or will discover through Ancestry membership or library use.
First names with TOZER:
Alternate spellings (?):
Tassier: Geo.;Leva;Rosa;Wm.;Willie (all Cumberland)
Tawser: Rebecca J;Elizabeth;Henry W;John G;Josephene (Josephine?);Lillian;Sarah E (all Salem County)
Touser: Mary; Stacy (male); Tholp (male) (all Cape May)
Tozier: Esther,Wm & Helen (Camden); Louis (Hunterdon)
Touser,Touzer,Towser,Tousier,Tozour,Touzer = none
