In the Family History Library Research Outline for Indiana there is on page 3 a statement about Territorial and State Census records of 1853, 1856, 1857, 1877. It says that scattered fragments of these and other county and state censusues are at the Indiana State Library. I am trying to find out if anyone knows about these. I have tried to locate them but the Library says that they don't exist.
A cousin (back in the early 1970's) found our Joseph and Samuel Brazil/Brazzel families in the census records. She had to have found these censuses because Joseph and Samuel are not anywhere else to be found in the regular federal census films. This cousin has died and I am unable to find anything more. Can someone help me about whether these census records do exist?
