The 1790 census was the premiere census in the new United States. Do not worry about differences in style. Each enumerator could create his own table for recording the information about the families to be counted, but the information had to be consistent recorded. Only the head of the household was named, everyone else was reduced to a hack mark, free and slave.
I am a Family History Center Director, former young adult librarian, researcher and avid family historian. I believe that deep reading of primary sources divulge amazing results.
