Patrick Eagan in the 1865 NY State Census

Between the Federal Census held every ten years, New York State conducts a state census. Here is the Eagan family entry for the census taken in 1865. They are on the second sheet (on the right) and household number 20. Note that the name is spelled "Egan." In addition to my great-grandparents, Patrick and Mary, their four children then are listed.  The oldest, Catherine Jane, is listed as born in Orleans County. She was born in Medina. The rest were born in Rochester. James died in 1872 and Mary Ann died in 1870. My grandfather, Stephen, was eight years old at that time.
