TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: NAMES IN [ ] WERE ORIGINALLY NOTED AS DITTO MARKS OR A DASHED LINE ON THE ORIGINAL CENSUS. IN ORDER TO MAKE A USEFUL INDEX, I'VE RE-TYPED THE LAST NAME AND PLACED IT IN BRACKETS [ ]. NAMES I HAD TROUBLE DECIPHERING, I'VE PLACED IN PARANTHESES ( ) AND HAVE TRIED TO PUT A QUESTION MARK AFTER IT.

As with ANY transcription, please confirm the data with the original source YOURSELF. Nobody knows your family like you do :-)
