** Transcriber's Notes **

Please Note: Enumerator has written across "can read, can write, can 
speak English" columns: "All over ten can read, write and speak English".
Also, for persons #67-72, and #76-82, Enumerator listed "place of birth" as,
what looks like "Native NS"; might be "Native US".

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

Columns omitted are years married, number of children, number of living 
children, number of farm schedule (all columns were left blank in the
original census).  

Transcriber used the abbreviations Miss for Missouri, Mich for Michigan, 
Ill for Illinois, Penn for Pennsylvania, Kan for Kansas, N York for 
New York, and Y for yes.  

No address given in census for this orphanage.
This census was taken June 6, 1900 by Justin M. Ranney, Enumerator.

 5  Looks like Sulkivan, might be Sullivan
 8  A "check-mark" appears for the birth month for this person in the original
    census.
10  Hard to read
11  Might be Laund, Leund, possibly Lund
13-14  Surname hard to read.  First name for #13 looks like Leanda; might be 
       Laura
15  Unable to read name, relation.  Surname may begin with "Gat...",
    or "Get..." but can't say for certain. Entire name for this person falls
    in darkened area of original census.  Relation seems to start with "S..."
17-19  Surname might be Wichman, possibly Wickman
25-26  Surname might be Zentgraf
27-28  Surname might be Ipfarkoch, Iffarkoch, Offarkoch
34-36  Surname might be Luttig
42-45  Missing letters of surname above are hard to decipher; sort of looks 
       like Von Ottenheim, but might be more like Von St?enheim, "Von F???heim",
       or some other variation.  There does seem to be interference from the "z"
       and "g" on the line directly above (surname is written once in the 
       original census).  First name for #42 is hard to read; looks like Argst/
       Angst, or Argeb ...
48  Age is listed as 1/12 (i.e., 1 month)
49  Age is listed as 1/12 (i.e., 1 month)
62-63  Surname is hard to read.  Looks like Leogue; might be 
       Logue, Logne, possibly Lozur, or something similar.
67-72  Place of birth for these persons is entered as "Native NS" (looks like,
       "NS") but might be "Native US".
72  There is overwriting in the original census for the birth month
    of this person; looks like Apr was written over June but can't
    say for certain. 
76-78  Surname might be Schaeker.  Age for #78 is listed in the
       original census as 1/12 (i.e., 1 month).
76-82  Place of birth for these persons is entered as "Native NS" (looks like,
       "NS") but might be "Native US".
