** Transcriber's Notes **

Please Note: The overall condition of this particular list is quite
good, but lightness/fading in areas of original census made interpretation 
difficult at times, especially with dates, nativity columns, and in a few
cases, names. Penmanship itself is somewhat scratchy and pointed making it
difficult in some cases to distinguish letters such as i, n, r, m, u, e, 
w, etc., especially if the letters were grouped together. Letters "i" were 
not always dotted.  

Columns above represent name, relation, color, gender, birth month, birth 
year, age, birth place, father's birth place, mother's birth place, year of 
immigration, years in United States, occupation, months at school, can read, 
can write, can speak English, home owned or rented, home owned free or 
mortgaged, home or farm.  

Columns omitted are marital status (all are single), years married, number 
of children, number of living children, naturalization, months unemployed, 
number of farm schedule.  With the exception of the column for marital
status, the remaining columns omitted were left blank in the original census.  

Transcriber used the abbreviations Calif for California, Un for Unknown, 
Nev for Nevada, N York for New York, Miss for Missouri, S Dak for South 
Dakota, Kan for Kansas, Penn for Pennsylvania, Ill for Illinois, N Mex for 
New Mexico, Ariz for Arizona, and Y for yes.

    may be different surnames).  Might be Wresneski, Wumuski, Wesmieski,
