This page is a clearinghouse for transcribed census data. Federal and state census records often record data about race, gender, age, home ownership, employment, composition of households, and so forth. Research on Rosewood by others prior to 2005 focused on the 1920 census. This was largely due to the difficulty associated with accessing historical census records in the 1990s and earlier. Accessing these records has become much easier.
At present, the following records are available, others will be added as they are transcribed. The 1885 state census includes links to the original scanned images and a trascribed spreadsheet.
