The Town of Ohio, Herkimer County, 1850 federal population census was transcribed from the original microfilm by Lisa Slaski. 

The 1850 census is composed of the following 13 columns with headers entitled:

The following 13 pages (page 271 thru 283)  are provided here exactly as transcribed to the best of my ability.  No attempt has been made to correct spellings, etc., (everything appears as it does on the original microfilm record).  Use the links below to scan each page from the census for this township:
