Every effort has been taken to transcribe the records accurately, but errors are very possible. The old handwriting is sometimes very difficult to decipher and some of these records were so faint the microfilm was marked ILLEGIBLE. Please use this transcription only as a guide & always consult the original record to confirm the information.

Thank-you to IAGenWeb volunteer Constance Diamond for her generosity in making these records available for transcription!
