Go re-read your post. If you were guessing, it sure reads like rather emphatic "guessing" to me.

Populous: densely populated. I would think that would mean the most people per square mile.


Now according to which states you consider Southern, you can now find the answer. There are many interesting lists with this post.

Compare this to the latest population and see how things have changed.

My state of North Carolina had 393,751 in the 1790 census. It was third in total population in 1790 only behind Pennsylvania and the highest population, Virginia.

Today North Carolina is 9th or 10th and has a total population of 9,535,483.
I find it strange that some states have grown so little since 1960??
