# Pages 1, 15, 16 and 17 are the only pages on which this township's census taker lists a "nearest town or post office."
* Information supplied by Jo (Chard) Henry supplying full names of Chard family members:
S.J. = Susan Jane Chard

J.M. = James Marion Chard

Sarah C. = Sarah Cornelia Chard

M.F. = Minnie Francis Chard

I.C. = Ida Cordelia Chard

W.O. = William Arthur Chard

Cora E. = Cora Elizabeth Chard

Jocie L. = Josie Louisa Chard

Henry A. = Henry Ambrose Chard

Henry Ambrose was my grandfather. --Jo (Chard) Henry
?? In one dwelling it's Bruster. In another it's Buster. These people, all African American and all coming to Kansas from Kentucky, might have had the same surname, with the error on the census takers' part. Perhaps the spelling was Brewster as well.
?? We could not tell if the census taker meant Owen or Owens.
?? Possibly Harris?

NOTE..... The census taker must have made a mistake in the gender of Louisa Williams at the top of this page!
?? The census taker wrote "Virginia, West" in the birthplace column and just "Virginia" in the Where from to Kansas collumn. Possibly he meant the West to signify both Virginias in each column.

?? The first two people, married adults, have their surname spelled Petterson. A separate dwelling/family number appears for the follwing six people who are all children and have the surname, Peterson. Verification from other sources indicates that the surname was spelled Peterson. Cemtery records from the area show a James P. and Clayton R. Peterson which match the initials above (verification by Tracee Hamilton)
## This line is crossed out. There is nothing written on the line except the given name, Loisa?, which has also been crossed out.
++ We're guessing that these people were not born in Kansas although the census taker noted that as place of birth.
** Note: After the Healy family came to America one branch changed their name to Haley. (verification by Tracee Hamilton)

NOTE..... The fact that three of the above families/dwellings, all with married couples, are headed by single males seems a bit strange but this is how it was recorded.
?? True spelling is either Sorensen or Sorenson. (verification by Tracee Hamilton)
* The "w" here probably means weeks.
## Cemetery records indicate a Hans C. Hendricksen in the area. There were also Hendrickson families in the area as well. (verfication by Tracee Hamilton)
