The Columns above represent Name, Relationship, Sex, Color, Age, Marital Status, No. years Present Marriage, Mother of how many children,
children still living, birthplace of this person, birthplace of Father of this person, birthplace of Mother of this person, Year of Immigration,

read, can write, can speak English, Owns or rents home, Owned free or mortgaged, farm or house, No. of farm schedule.

Please Note: There is damage to the original document in a number of places coinciding with the enumeration of this orphanage.  The list spreads over
three census pages in the original document, i.e., bottom of 1st page, entire second page, and top of third page; damage was confined to both the
bottom left and bottom right of affected pages and is represented by the occasional cluster of stars in the above transcription.  The damage consists 
of both darkened areas and other places where the document was taped.  Taped sections come out as black on microfilms and in the on-line 
images; in both cases, information in these areas has been either mainly or totally obliterated. Names and other information in the above listing where 
any type of damage exists in original document are noted in footnotes below.

In ALL cases above, dashed lines represent entries left blank by the enumerator in the original document.

For birth month of March enumerator used abbreviation "Mch" and not "Mar".

Address for this orphanage is Poplar Boulevard, no house number given.
This census was enumerated on the 5th day of June, 1900 by Patrick J. Miffin.

  1  Could not read word entered in relationship column due to quality of original document, in this case, "overwriting"; it looks like "S?per?oreas", but can't say for sure. 
     For this person, two of the "Home Ownership" columns are hard to read. "Owned free or mortgaged" looks like a "T" has been entered in this column but is most likely an
     "F".  For "Farm or house" column, the entry also looks like it may be an "F"; this entry is faded in part and may actually be the left side of an "H", however, there is
     an entry of "8" in column for "Farm schedule". 
  7  Name of this person looks like "Lamina" but could be "Lavina".  Due to taped section of census page (i.e., damage of original document), the following information could
     not be determined for this person: full name of order, months not employed, attended school within the year, can read, can write, can speak English, owns or rents home.
 8-9 Due to taped section of census page (i.e., damage of original document), the following information could not be determined for either of these persons: name of order, 
     year of immigration, Years resided in US, Naturalized or alien, Profession, months not employed, attended school within the year, can read, can write, can speak English, 
     owns or rents home, Free or mortgaged, farm or house, # of farm schedule.
 10  Same as Line 8 & 9, directly above, although this is the first orphan listed.
 11  Can not read family name as copy is very dark. Nor could I read if child could speak English, dark copy.
 12  Can not read family or first name, dark copy. Could not read if child could read, write or speak English due to tape on original document. 
 13  Name (both family and first name) of this person is obscured by darkness of the original document as is immigration and education information (due to tape on original
     document) for this person.
 14  First name for this person could be Fabic, Tabic, Fabie, or Tabie. 
 27  Birth month for this person is hard to read; looks like either Jan or Jun
 38-40 Surname for these three persons could be either Sauders or Sanders.
 41  Could not read Month, year of birth, age or birthplace due to quality of original document; entries in these columns are extremely light.   
 47  Birth place for this person could not be read due to quality of original document; entry is extremely light.
 49  Surname for this person is hard to read; looks like Migho but could be Miglio, Meglio, Megleo, Migleo, or perhaps Maglio, etc.  
 51  Birth year and age for this person can not be read due to quality of original document; entries in these columns are extremely light.  Birth place for this person is
     also very light, however, it would seem that the state entered there begins with an "A" (best read for this transcriber; it may not be correct).
 52-54 Last letter of surname is hard to determine with any certainty due to quality of original document.  The surname could be Cavaganan or Cavaganar or some other variation.
 55-56 Could not most of family name due to quality of original document, in this case, darkened areas.  Best read for this transcriber is "Roddit", "Reddit" or some variation. 
 57  Could not read full family name, only last few letters due to darkened area of original document.
 58-63 Could not read full name, race, sex, month and year of birth and age due to quality of original document (please see second paragraph above). 
 72  Surname for this person is hard to read; looks like Hersae, but could be Hearse, Hensar, Heasar, Hersal, or some variation of these.
 73  First name for this person is hard to read; could be Andrew but looks like "Aut???"; last letters of first name are very light. 
 88  Could not understand first letter of family name; best read for this transcriber, and, it is just a guess, is "Eunver".  Another possibility may be Conner, but this doesn't
     seem as likely.
 91  Could not read birth month for this person.
 92  Birth place for this person is extremely light in original document.  Best read for this transcriber is "Alabama", but can't say for sure if this is correct.
 94  Could not read birth month for this person.
108  Could not read surname for this person with any certainty at all.  Best reads for this transcriber include Plunket, Clunket, Clundet, or Plundet, but the actual surname 
     intended by the enumerator may not even come close to any of these.
109-113 Could not understand first letter of family name; best read for this transcriber for this surname is "Galena", "Galania" or "Galasia".  Columns re Profession/occupation, 
     months not employed, attended school within the year, can read and write, also could not be read due to quality of original document (i.e., tape; please see second paragraph 
     in this section above). 
115 Could not read birth place of parents, or word after "Pastor Sacred" (in profession)
