Presidents Day: Presidents in the Census

Since it's President's Day, I thought I'd share links to the census records (1850-1930) that include the President at the time and his household. If possible, I've linked to free sites that don't require paid subscription, but there are a few that require Ancestry.com subscriptions.


1850: Zachary Taylor, born 1784 Virginia, Occupation: Prest. U.S.

1860: James Buchanan, born 1791 Pennsylvania, Occupation: President U.S. (Note: His hostess, niece Harriet Lane doesn't have her age listed.)

1870: Ulysses S. Grant, born 1822 Ohio, Occupation: President U.S. (Note: Wife Julia is merely 'keeping house.')
