1870 Census--Levi Strauss


He's not on page 501...nor is that his house number either.

The Levi Strauss of "Levi" jeans fame is living in San Francisco, California, in 1870.

You can search the 1870 census and see where your ancestor was living, but it won't tell you if he was wearing Levis or not.
