Have you ever wondered who lived in Tombstone in 1880, or tried to find

The 1880 Census Index of Tombstone Arizona Territory is divided into two
volumes, which are subdivided into geographical area sections as were
originally taken by the census enumerator.
Volume I consists of the
Census of Tombstone and the Village of Tombstone.
Volume II consists of
the Census of Charleston, Contention, and the Country, which is in the
rural area surrounding Tombstone.
The 1880 Census Index of Tombstone Arizona Territory lists each
individual alphabetically, as well as provides information concerning
their age, occupation, and place of birth. The page, line, and sheet
numbers of each individual is also listed according to where they are
listed in the original census sheets. Additional information of a
particular individual can be further examined by using the page, line,
and sheet numbers to reference to the photocopies of the original census
sheets provided at the last half of each volume. An example sheet is
also provided to see what additional information is found on an original
census sheet. The spelling of various names of individuals was left
unaltered, although it was quite obvious that many names were spelled
incorrectly by the census enumerator.
The 1880 Census Index of Tombstone Arizona Territory, will provide
valuable information and insight to those individuals, whether either
famous, infamous, or common folk who lived in Tombstone during the early
days of infancy and contributed to its legend.
It should be noted here that Tombstone was in Pima County, when the 1880
census was taken in June of that year. Cochise County was not created
until February 1, 1881. The front cover of this publication shows a map
of Cochise County, in 1895. Its purpose is to display the relationship
of Tombstone to its surrounding communities and not to indicate that
Tombstone was in Cochise County in 1880.
