At the beginning of the 19th century how many American wild buffalo were there, and at the end of the very same century how many were there?

Over 60 million vs. under 1,000 (http://www.ktca.org/newtons/11/bison.html)
Incidentally the North American "buffalo" is actually a bison as opposed to the buffalo of Africa and Asia (e.g. the cape and water buffalo).
