� Note: It appears that sometimes each name was written in a different hand and with
unusual spellings. This leads me to believe the entries were made on the census by
each individual. Others were somewhat easier to read but still written with a poor
hand – I apologize for any errors in the transcription. Some persons were listed more
than once.
