|Section of 1846 census at Estate Fountain on St Croix|
So, I conducted a study of the birthplaces indicated on the Danish censuses from 1841-1911. I discovered a couple of interesting features about the population profile so I figured I’d share.
This post is about the composition of the St Croix population from pre-emancipation to right before the US purchase. In particular, the overwhelming tendency to be Bahn Ya (Born here).
