Thanks to Debby McCoy for the suggestion that "PR" shown in the space for "number of family" might have meant Physician's Report or Review, and to Sandra Borneman for offering Physician's Records or Returns.

Number of family was a designation in addition to the dwelling number.  ADDED to this transcription is the Head of Household associated with the family number; this information did NOT appear on the original Mortality Schedules.

All persons listed on these census pages were Caucasian; the column for "Color" was omitted from this transcription.

For the sake of brevity, state names or abbreviations have been replaced with the present-day, two-character postal code abbreviations.
