* The census taker used quotation marks on this line indicating that the surname was Rogers. But perhaps the surname was Farrus. This is only a guess on our part.

* Once again the use of quotation marks and illegible handwriting make this a difficult name to read. Two names appear on this line. Quotation marks would indicate that the surname is Blaackall#, which is in itself a strange spelling. The two names on the line are hard to read and perhaps the name, Henry?, is the woman's surname.

#... The first time the census taker wrote it out it looked like Francis. All the other writings of the name appear to be Frances.

#... Quotation marks make it appear that the gentleman's last name is Parsons. But it is possible that his last name was Patterson and the census taker did not include his first name or initial. The same is true of the next man, W. W. Young. Quotation marks have been written to the left of the name, Young, indicating that his name might have been W. W. Young Parsons.

# The census taker used ditto's on all the members of this household implying that all had the surname, Hill. However This woman has Cordwell (or Cardwell) after her first name. Thus this may be her real surname.

# The surname is spelled Ricardson which is a real surname. There is also the possibility that the census taker made a mistake and it is really Richardson.


Township: Cedron

Nearest Post Office:

page: 14


So where's page 14?????


Good question........... Unfortunately the microfilm from which we are taking this information is lacking that part of page 14 which includes names, age, gender, marital status, etc. We contacted the Kansas State Historical Society and asked them if there is a chance of finding the missing part of page 14. Jane Kelsey, one of the excellent librarians at the Society checked the original census volume for Cedron Township and found that the census taker had not included this page of information in the data submitted! So there is no paper copy available listing the people on this page either. We can tell you (from another part of the census listing heads of families and their agricultural holdings) that the following men appear on page 14:
Jas. Stewart
H. O. Parsen? (or Parson)
Wm Brown
F. L. Brown
N. E. Snavely (who was also the census taker for this township)
