|Title:||Census for Captain Clayton's District in Georgia|
Beginning in 1802, Georgia initiated periodic census-taking in various districts designated as militia districts. The captain commanding each district usually undertook the task of taking the census.
A census of Captain Clayton's District (or Eastern District), territory ceded by the United States to the State of Georgia, ca. 1802. Research indicates this area may have been in the area that became the first Walton County, Georgia (now Transylvania County, North Carolina). Signed by Richard Williamson, the census lists the names of heads of families, number of whites, number of blacks, and total population.
