United States Census - State of Texas

After Texas won independence from Mexico after the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836, the First Texas Congress established the structure of the Harrisburg County government and in December of 1836 designated the county seat at the new town of Houston. In December of 1839, by an action of the Third Congress, Harrisburg County was renamed to Harris County.

Harris County has census records dating back to 1850:
