1895 Oregon Census-Multnomah Co-Jacob & Eliz

1895 Oregon Census-Multnomah Co-Jacob Ohlegschlager

This census is in alpha order so we can’t identify the neighbors.

The spelling is Ohlegschlager.

Jacob is a legal voter, a male of 50 years and upward, and foreign born. I believe that a man must be a citizen to be a legal voter. Further searching in Multnomah Co might uncover citizenship application and documents.

Elizabeth is a female of 18 years and upward and foreign born and being female would not be a legal voter at that time period.

Adam is a legal voter, a male under 45 and over 21, and of foreign birth.

Also listed is John, a male under 18 and over 12, born US of A. I believe that this John is a grandson of Jacob and Elizabeth. There is some evidence the Jacob and Elizabeth’s oldest son John had a son by the name of John.
