The letter goes on to list the families by their Family number.  The census
itself had lines drawn above and below that family with a connecting bracket
commented with "Pittsford Township". This was done throughout for those
certain families.  These marks seem to by written in another hand, since it
does not look like the enumerator's or Geo W Conn's hand writting.
