Census Records

Continental Congress Census 1775

"Apparently there was no colonial census of North Carolina, but tax records, used judiciously, may be substituted (see North Carolina Tax Records). A census was conducted in 1775 by direction of the Continental Congress, and the enumeration of Pitt County has survived."
