Neighborhoods

 

The revolt took place in the rural neighborhood near Cross Keys, Virginia, about thirteen miles southwest of the county seat of Jerusalem (population 175).  

 

The 1830 U.S. Census did not list the address or specific location of the households for which they reported data. In general, though, census takers recorded data as they traveled from household to household so that households listed on the same page tend to have been located in roughly the same neighborhood.

 

Statistics for each page reveal how many households in a neighborhood contained slaves, how many did not, and how many independent free black households there were. Information on the numbers, the sex, and the age of slaves in a neighborhood is also available.
