Kindergarten Teacher as KTeacher, 1st Assistant as 1st Asst., House Keeper

Address of Institute: Mortine Lane (might be Mortini/Martine; no street no.
given).
This census was taken on the 19th day of June, 1900, by H.H. Farnham, 
Enumerator.

 1 Surname might be Reader, Raader. In column for occupation in original 
   document it reads Matron of Orphan Home 
 2 Surname might be Reader, Raader.
 4 Could be Marl, Mary, possibly Maud; looks like "Marcl" or "Mard", as 
   written. 
12 Female was given as gender for male name
17-19 Might be Harishno, Hasishno, or something similar.
20 First letter(s) of surname are unreadable due to quality of original 
   document; what is visible looks like "..phy", "..urphy".  Might be Murphy.
21 Surname, year of birth, and father's birth place are unreadable due to 
   quality of original document. Given name could end with "..yetta", 
   "..yolta", or something similar. Age sort of looks like 12 but can't say 
   for certain; might be 10 or something similarly written. Birth place for
   this person is also unreadable but might be California.
22 Surname, given name, year of birth, age and father's birth place are 
   unreadable due to quality of original document.  Given name appears to 
   have no tall letters (other than first letter) and no letters with 
   tailing loops (e.g., y, f, etc.).  Might be something like Susan, but 
   can't say for certain. Age appears to be overwritten; a large circle, or 
   loop, is visible; might be 9, possibly 8, but can't say for certain - 
   could be part of the "overwriting"/crossing out of initial entry. In the 
   "years married" column is something that looks like "11" written slightly
   rotated to the left. Whether this refers to age or anything at all is 
   unclear; marital status for this person is "S".  Birth place might be
   California.
23 Surname, given name, gender, month and year of birth, age and father's 
   birth place, months in school, as well as can read, write and speak 
   English - are all unreadable for this person due to quality of original 
   document. Birthplace might be California.
27-28 Surname might be Kraup, Kemp, possibly Kimp, or something similar.
31 Given name looks like "Willo"; might be Willa, possibly Willow.
32 Given name might be Birdie, Bertie.  The crossing for the "t" (if it is a 
   "t"), is misplaced and might be a stray mark.
35 Given name looks like Franlin, as written; might be Franklin 
39 Surname might be Dow, Dott
40-45 Surname might be Coster, Costen
46-47 Surname is somewhat hard to read; might be Verstuleth, Viestuleth, or 
   something similar.
