*Notations at bottom of the schedules (these notes appeared on the original)

-remarks at bottom of Fairview twp.: "The Physicians are all residents of McGregor Clayton County Iowa, and the only way I could see them would be by going to McGregor. And as Doctor F. Andros is absent in Dakota I could not get the full report so I did not incur the expense of going after incomplete reports. The other cases are reported on the statements of the parents and others that were present at the time. In case 11 Sister W. Hays lived alone and was found by a neighbor W. Gilbert Hulse as he breathed his last, his name is not numbered as belonging to any family.

-remarks at bottom of Iowa twp.:
No report of attending Physicians in above reported deaths because both Doctors Berwig & Dockham had left town before the taking of the census - Harrison Smart, Enumerator

Of the deaths reported above, the following occurred out of this enumeration district, though the families to which the deceased belonged, resided June 1, 1880, in this enumeration district, as follows:
Luther, Jacob - place where death occurred, Mitchel, Davidson county, Dakota Ter
Harris, Nellie -place where death occurred, Jefferson, Houston co. Minn
