This roll or census is a variation of the 1842 Delaware census or roll. The roll of the heads of families by number with the number and ages within each family can be found on Page 1 of Faye Louis Smith Arellano, transcriber. Delaware Trails: Some Tribal Records 1842-1907 published in 1996, reprinted 1998. ISBN 0-8063-0194-5. Order from: Clearfield Co., 200 E. Eager Street, Baltimore, MD 21202.

I alphabetized this listing in order to assist me with the transcribing a document recorded several years later and I thought I would put it here in the web site to assist others in their research. In the document English first names were first and then the family name. For ease in finding an entry, I have placed the family names first. Lenape-Delaware names remain as they were in the document. Bear in mind in your research that sometimes the latter are difficult to transcribe and that the names vary from record to record, both English and Lenape-Delaware, but particularly the latter. The 1842 document is important as it is the first record found of a listing of Delaware. Other lists may be available from from their periods of residence in southeast and southwest Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio, but is so, we have not found them. Editor

There were 260 names of Heads of Families consisting of 189 males under 10, 260 males of males of 10 and under 40, 53 males over 40, 182 females under 10, 302 females of 10 and under 40, and 73 females over 4, total 1,039 individuals. However, it appears that 16 of these Heads-of-Families individuals were not Delaware, so that the total number of Delaware is probably 1,018 individuals. comprising 181 males under 10, 245 males of 10 and under 40, 50 males over 40, 179 females under 10, 293 females of 10 and under 40, 70 females over 40. Faye Louise Smith Arellano indicates that the 16 individuals may have been non-Indian, but she also notes on page 8, Delaware Trails:

Most, though perhaps not all of the individuals enumerated here on the last page of the 1842 Delaware census . . . are Munsees. The Whiteeyes, Hill, Lewis, Israel, Peters and Samuel surnames all appear on an 1852 census of the 98 Christian Indians within the Kansas Agency (the successor to the Fort Leavenworth Agency, established 1 July 1851). [See Delaware Trails for a more detailed explanation of the non-Delaware individual's on the census roll.
