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

WASHINGTON FACTS: There are but few counties in which there is no Washington Township, and Jones County is no exception to the rule. This is the northeast township of the county, and is one of the first settled portions in it. The north fork of the Maquoketa River enters the northeast corner, crosses to the southeast and leaves the township about a half-mile north of the southeast corner. The Whitewater branch of the Maquoketa enters the township from the north, a mile west of the northeast corner, and unites with the latter in the north part of Section 10. Farm Creek crosses the southwest portion, and entering Clay Township on the south, empties into the south fork of the Maquoketa a little north of the center of that township.
