    Seeking Chilocco Indian Boarding School on 1910 Census

    Moureena Williamson Newbie

      My great grandfather and his brother attended Chilocco Indian Boarding School from 1904-1916. I was told they were included in the 1910 US Census for Oklahoma but I have no idea where to look? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

            Dear Ms. Williamson,

             

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

             

            We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that contain records of Chilocco Indian School as part of the listing for Newkirk Township, Kay County, Oklahoma (Enumeration District 64, Sheets 14A thru 15B).  A census of the employees of Chilocco Indian School in 1920 is part of the regular federal census for that year in Record Group 29. The listing is part of the listing for Newkirk Township, Kay County, Oklahoma (Enumeration District 138, Sheets 8B and 9A).  A census of the employees and pupils of Chilocco Indian Agricultural School in 1930 is part of the regular federal census for that year. The listing is part of the listing for Newkirk Township, Kay County, Oklahoma (Enumeration District #36-20, Sheets 8A thru 10B). For access to the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov

              The 1910 Census only includes staff or employees of the Chilocco Indian School, not students.
