Census Data
1885 Wisconsin State Census for Washburn Co.

The 1885  Wisconsin State Census for Washburn County, Wisconsin was taken when Washburn Co. was only two years old.  It contains only the names of the head of each household and also states how many males and females were in each household, along with their nationalities.  Names are typed here as they appear to be on the original census records.  As a result, there may be mis-spellings of names and you are encouraged to use a variety of spelling combinations when looking through these records for specific heads of households.  Please keep in mind that I am not out to 'change history' and will not make corrections of name spellings, as this is how the names appear on the actual census.  Some names are completely or partially unreadable.  These names are represented fully or partially with question marks (?) or blanks ( _ ).

In 1885 there were only two townships (Bashaw & Veazie) in Washburn Co.  Records are presented here in the order that the names are listed (presumably in the order that the census taker visited each household), and in alphabetical order per township.  Please note that there were only two townships in Washburn Co. in 1885.  To view the locations within Washburn County of these two townships, please see the maps here.
