How can I find 1860 Roswell Georgia, Fulton County Census?
Is the 1860 Roswell Georgia , Fulton County Census available online? In particular, looking for the women (ages and names) who worked in the Mill just before the War. Many thanks!
It appears that Roswell was part of Cobb County until the end of 1931, when it was ceded to Fulton County, Georgia (see Wikipedia: Roswell, Georgia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roswell,_Georgia)
