1900 US Census

All Wanless-like names

This page contains all Wanless/Wandless variants in the U.S.A. in the 1900 census, according to the 1900 census index at www.genealogy.com, plus at least one that wasn’t indexed. MANY THANKS to Martha Lange Palmer of the Pittsburgh Wandless line for providing all the index entries; transcription of the census entries was done by Holly Cochran from the online images at www.ancestry.com.

Columns:
Surname, Given Name, sex, relationship to head, birthdate,
age, marital status and length of marriage if married,
(for women: # of children born, # living),
birthplace, father’s BP, mother’s BP, occupation
last column or two may include:owns/rents house, year of immigration, how many yrs in US, any other info from census

I omitted the “color” column to save space; assume everybody was white unless otherwise noted.
I tried to mark which databases these people are filed in – if not marked, they’re either “strays” in database 99 or they’re not filed (or I haven’t got around to marking them – if you see any unmarked entries & you know which database they’re in, please let me know .) Also, I did a lot of this late at night, so may have missed some items; let me know if something seems to be missing and I’ll recheck the census image online.

There is a suspiciously large number of Wan(d)lesses known to have been living in New York City (Brooklyn, Bronx) in 1900 who are not in this index, so either their surnames were uniformly mangled or part of NYC didn’t get indexed.

People who have similar surnames but are probably not Wan(d)lesses
