Runnels County was not organized until 1880, therefore there is no census records prior to that date. The census records have been transcribed from the microfilmed copies located in the Mahon Library in Lubbock, Texas. Obvious errors in birthdates and places, as well as things that need verification, are highlighted in red. Otherwise, the census was transcribed just exactly as it reads on the microfilm. Errors, such as names mispelled, will remain unchanged so as to keep with the authenticity of the census record.
