1870 Census--Boss Tweed


As the image indicates, several attempts were made to ascertain information on the family of New York City politician "Boss Tweed"

for the 1870 census. The ages of all household members are blank on the census form as are the property values. This note was made by the census taker.

You can search the 1870 United States Federal Census at Ancestry.com for your ancestor--who hopefully answered more questions than the Tweeds did
