Greenfield Township
The 1854 census included columns for "Colored Males" and "Colored Females," but none were listed for any of the townships.

GREENFIELD FACTS: This is the southwestern township of this county. The surface is generally even and unbroken, and the soil as fertile as any in the county or State. A number of small but beautiful groves, pleasantly distributed, constitute the only timber-land in the township. It is well watered by the north and the south fork of Walnut Creek and their tributaries. The township is one of the best agricultural districts in the county, the farmhouses are good, and the farmers thrifty and prosperous.
