1790 Census: Slave Holders, Other Free Persons and Slaves - Cheshire County - New Hampshire

A while back got involved with a project of Slave Holders, Other Free Persons (OFPs) and Slaves for the State of New Hampshire. I got interested in this project through a friend that was doing the State of Vermont. Another part of my interest in this project is I have a 5th Great Grandfather who served in the Revolutionary War and signed on in New Hampshire. His name was Stephen Pellom or Pelham (spelled both ways and there are other variations of the spelling too). I have found Stephen's family in the census records for Vermont. These census state they were OFPs. Other records I have state these Pellom's were negro, mulatto, and white.

So, I have all this info I have found for the 1790 census of the OFPs and Slaves in the NH census and wanted a place to find to share the info.  This is a work in progress so check back.

This is a work in progress.  I will be adding additional information with sources time permitting. I'm hoping others will find it of interest also and contribute.  I have subscribed to the social networking site Genealogy Wise and set up a group there. Anyone interested in joining my group called 1790 Census: Slave Holders, Other Free Persons and Slaves are more than welcome to add/subtract or comment on any information they might like to share.  In the meantime, hope you find something of interest for this site I have set up for the OFPs of New Hampshire.
