* We're guessing that there was a dwelling/family numbering error here as Mr. and Mrs. Dick are listed in two different families/dwellings.
# Very hard to read. May be Chintz or Chirtz.

*The cenus taker actually listed the full place of birth as Crompton, England.
*Surname was difficult to read. Could also be Chirtz.
## The census taker's handwriting and variation in ending of this surname each time he wrote it made it difficult to tell if it was Wild, Wilds or Wilde.

# Surname hard to read. Census taker crossed the "ll" thus making them "tt" on two persons but did not cross the letters on the two others. So it might be Dillon, Ditton or even Dutton?
?? Ditto marks are used here instead of a first name for this infant boy. Possibly the family didn't have a name for him yet.
## Her real name was Therese, wife of Johann Georg Holl. This information was provided by Scott Holl, their great grandson.

?? Although the census taker wrote the surname as SMITH, Kirk Painter has notified us that the gentleman was his great-great-grandfather, John Nicholas SCHMIDT (AKA Smith or Schnidt, b. January 17, 1845, Germany, d. December 04, 1922, Beverly, Kansas).
## Though the census taker wrote the surname as PETE the correct spelling was PEATE.
** This name was impossible for us to read except that it appears to start with an "I."
++No information is provided here for this person except her gender and an illegible word for her name. We thought the word might be a name, Anson, or perhaps the word, Unknown. Perhaps this was a newborn girl but that is a guess. Dittos are used for place of birth and "where from to Kansas" for this person rather than spelling out the place name as he did for everybody else.
