Pike County Enumeration of Educable Children

Mr. Paul Walker has graciously shared with the McComb Public Library - a collection of scanned images for Pike County's Enumeration of Educable Children
for the following years: 

 1890, 1896, 1900, 1908, 1912, 1912A, 1916, 1916A, 
1920, 1923, 1923A, 1925, 1925A, 1927, 1929, 1931, 
1933, 1935, 1937, 1939, 1941, 1943, 1945, 1947, 1949, 
1951, 1953, 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961, 1963, 1965

These images include the parent's name and the children's names and ages.
This is a wonderful resource for us to have because the library only has the 1890 in book format. The 1890 and 1896 are great because it helps fill the gap caused by the loss of most of the federal 1890 census. 

Also, scanned images of 7 catalogs from the McComb Female Institute (it eventually merged with Belhaven College.)
The years available are 1895-96, 1896-97, 1897-98, 1898-99, 1899-00, 1901-02, and 1902-03. 

The catalogs have no pictures, but do include names of faculty and students.

To get access to these images, email me at and let me know which files you are interested in. All files are in PDF Format. 

Update: All files have now been uploaded and ready for sharing. 
I'm sharing via Dropbox and Google Drive (because I ran out of free storage space on Dropbox.)
