1870 Census--Harriet Beecher Stowe

The author of Uncle Tom's Cabin is enumerated with her family in 1870. Not many females are listed in 1870 with an occupation, but Stowe is listed as an "authoress" and her husband is appropriately listed as a clergyman. The complete enumeration for the Stowes, along with a citation, can be viewed on our site.
