I was unable to find any evidence that the 1825 NY State Census was
capitulated or published in any way except for population statistics.  The
1835 and 1845 census summaries are fascinating and very detailed, making me
cringe when I think of what was not saved and what has not survived.  The
Federal and State census publications are usually found in larger and
Univeristy Libraries.
