Historical US Census records for Aspen Hill

The US government has released microfilm copies of the sheets filled out by census takers as they went around the county gathering information each decade. These old documents are of great help to genealogists and can also be used by other historians wishing to better understand the people living in an area. Depending on the year, the census records provide a variety of data on residents. In almost all years each person's name, age, and occupation was listed along with their relationship to the head of household. Ability to read and write was listed and in later years additional questions were asked about number of children born and still living. Unique to the 1900 census was a question asking the month and year of birth.

The 1930 census is the latest that is available because of privacy laws. The earliest record I've located so far is from 1850. The 1890 census records for most of the US were destroyed in a fire. This leaves 8 years available: 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930.

It's a bit difficult to identify which families are in Aspen Hill. Early years had no street names listed as was typical in rural areas. Street names are listed the 1920 and 1930 census records but no house numbers are listed. Typically a census taker would go house to house following all streets in an area. Once you identify families that stayed in the same location for several decades it becomes easier to track the route of the census taker and guess which sheets to examine.

To begin this process, I started with the household of James and Annie Gill who lived near present-day Georgia Avenue and Aspen Hill Road. I also included at least two sheets before and after Gill family.

It's possible to get an idea of which routes the census takers took, and even some of the homes' locations, by cross-referencing known deeds to known tracts. For example, the Davis family lived in the general vicinity of modern-day Aspen Hill Road and Oriental Street. The Hurlebaus and Braun families lived and farmed on the so-called Cassell Tract, some 250 acres with a southwest corner in the same place as the southwest corner of the modern-day Wheaton Woods Pool property. The Rabbitt family lands were in the same place as the contemporary Gate of Heaven Cemetery. The Rannie family lands were generally in the same area as now occupied by K-Mart and the apartment complexes north of that. The Beall family lands, including their family cemetery, were located in the vicinity of Strathmore neighborhood, to the north and east of the Rabbitt and Rannie lands, although it seems that at least some of the Beall family members lived on what is now Hewitt Avenue.

A note on the street names: Aspin Church Road seems to be the same as "old Aspen Hill Road", and the Brookeville-Washington Turnpike is now known as Georgia Avenue. The "Aspin Church" is almost certainly the old building, destroyed by fire in the 1970s, now occupied by the site of modern-day Saint Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church.

1940

Census detail for 1940 were released April 2nd 2012. They are not yet indexed or searchable but as soon as they are I will work to get them online.

For now, here is the map used to track census enumeration districts in 1940. Note that the only areas of Aspen Hill that show signs of development are the Manor Country Club area and the Hermitage Park development on Hewitt Avenue.

1870 Census records Showing Railroad Boarding House

Starting on page 92 of District 5 are entries for a boarding house of about 70 railroad workers building the B&O Metropolitan Division (which was completed in 1873). Judging from the previous census pages this would have been not too far from the Rabbit and Lyddane farms which are listed on pages 90 and 91. Does anyone have further information about this boarding house or camp?

No doubt this large a group of laborers would have had a big impact on the sleepy farming community of the time. An even bigger and longer-lasting change would have been the completed railroad which would become one catalyst for later suburban growth.

After the railroad boarding house is listed the residence of railroad engineering contractor Lawrence McCabe who at 23 is listed with the occupation "Superintendent RR", and is living with his uncle, railroad contractor Patrick McCabe. Apparently the B&O bid out work on separate sections of the Metropolitan Division to several different contractors with McCabe working on this particular section. McCabe would later go on to build several bridges, aqueducts, and tunnels elsewhere including the railroad tunnel in Baltimore and subway tunnels in Manhattan.
