Enumeration of Male Inhabitants of Twenty-One Years of Age and Upward, Citizens of Tennessee, January 1, 1891. Election Returns (State, County, and Local), 1796–Present. RG 87. Tennessee State Library and Archives, Nashville, Tennessee.
This database contains a Tennessee state enumeration of all males age 21 and older as of 1 January 1891.
This state enumeration of eligible voters in Tennessee was ordered by the state’s general assembly in January 1891. The governor was to appoint commissioners in each county to take a census of all males who were age 21 or older in their resident counties as of 1 January 1891. The timing makes these records useful for filling in the gap caused by the loss of the 1890 U.S. Federal Census.
