Does anyone have access to the 1890 census for Swain or Macon counties in NC? Looking for information on the Bird/Byrd and Freeman families.

I will be happy to do some research for you if you will give me full names of the family.

There is no 1890 Census! It was accidentally destroyed except for a very few counties, none of which were in western NC. This loss was probably the greatest one ever for folks searching family history in the US.

I should have said "except for a very few counties in a very few states."

I would really appreciate that. I am searching for the Benjamin Andrew Bird/Byrd family and the Samuel Freeman family. I believe Samuel's mother's name was Mary but not sure of his father's first name.

Samuel married Virginia (Jennie) Byrd in 1900 in Macon County and lived in Swain County until Jennies death in 1907??.

The 1880 Census for Macon County shows Benjamin and Margaret A. Byrd living there with their children, including Virginia F. Byrd, age 3. Other researchers have shown Virginia marrying Samuel Freeman and show Virginia burried in Tellico Cemetery, Franklin, Macon County, NC and gives the dob as 10/21/1878 and dod as 7/23/1905. I don't find Samuel buried there. Perhaps this info will assist you in further research or youy may have already had this data.
