NOTES FROM PAGE 5:
1)-- The census taker in the city of Tribune lists a "Vanoy" family. In the 1895 census index provided by the Kansas State Historical Society this family name appears as Vannoy.

2)-- "I.T." probably stands for Indian Territory (Oklahoma)

3)-- The surname here appears as both Supprise and Suprise. In the 1895 transcription by the Kansas State Historical Society it appears as Suprise.
