CENSUS OF NAUVOOIDENTIFICATION OF MEMBERSCIVIL WARD ONE
Maurine
Carr
Ward
The Spring 1992 issue of The Nauvoo Journalbegan a project of identifying some of the persons foundin the Nauvoo 1842 Census. This census is found in film#58 1,219 in the Family History Library in Salt Lake Cityunder the title, "A Record of the Names of the Membersof the Chuuch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints astaken by the lesser priesthood in the Spring of the year1842 and continued to be added [to] as the Membersarrive at the City of Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois.Also the Deaths of Members.
&
their Children,
&
Namesof Children under 8 years of Age."According to Dr. Lyman Platt, who did exten-sive study of the census and other records, the census wasprobably taken duuing the first two weeks ofFebruary of1842, then was co~npleted uuing the rest of the monthand turned in to the Church authorities by March I, 1842.Other infonnation about the census can be found in TheNauvoo Journal, Volu~ne and in Nauvoo: Early Mor-mon Records Series, voluune I, Lyman De Platt, High-land, Utah, 1980. For those persons who wish to searchthe original ~nicrofil~nn Salt Lake City. it is not filed onthe floor with other microfilms, but is in high densitystorage and will need to be requested at one of theservice windows.This issue continues the identification of mem-bers of the first civil ward in Nauvoo. As records aresearched, the names of individuals are spelled in a vari-ety ofways. The first choice in this journal is that foundin Family Group Sheets or personal histories where thename is known to be correct. Any variation of thespelling will be shown with the particular record where itwas found. I11 the event that a correct spelling is notknown, the spelling used below will be that found in the1842 Nauvoo Census. Where there are differences indates, spellings, places, etc. found within records, theywill both be listed with a slash between them. Theinformation below, accurate or not, is just as it is foundin a particular record. With few exceptions, the editorshave not tried to verify which information is more nearlycorrect than another.Children in a family who died previous to the1842 Census or those who were known to be in thefamily and in the church, but for some reason were notincluded in the census are also identified under a sepa-rate heading. Any children born after the census willonly be mentioned in the infonnation on a parent.The list of sources used in this study will befound at the back of this section.FAMILY OF RANDOLPH ALEXANDER ANDMYRZA NIX ALEXANDERRANDOLPH ALEXANDERBorn 22 Mar 1802, Union, Union.
