Key to special symbols used:
? behind the surname indicates that the surname
was partially illegible and the result is the attempt made by the transcriber.
? behind the given name indicates that the given
name or initial was partially illegible and the result is the guess of the transcriber.
_ inside of a Given or Surname indicates the transcriber didn't
venture to even try a guess.
Other notes bearing particularly on spellings in the archival record:
The Transcriber has made NO ATTEMPT
to correct or otherwise modify spellings. The spellings are what was found in
Some spellings of names have changed since 1850. Names such as "Paley,"
"Barbary," or "Cyntha" are spelled differently today than
they were then. The transcriber has made NO ATTEMPT to update the
spellings to that of modern times..
In a lot of cases the enumerator simply recorded the name incorrectly. The
transcriber has not made any attempt to correct for spelling errors even if the
correct spelling was known.
Ink blots, attempts to write over entries,
bad penmanship – made transcribing this census difficult. When these errors
were present the transcriber made an attempt to spell the name but in all
probability the name is incorrect to that of what was actually on the census. Don’t assume that an entry is
incorrectly transcribed just because it doesn’t make sense.
Sometimes it was difficult to discern the penmanship of the enumerator. There
was little variance to the letters, H, W, and N as well that of S, C and L. The
transcriber used the best guess as to what the letter was.
If you believe a record
to have been transcribed incorrectly, please contact me
to correct of the individual record. Please don't contact me to fix names that
the enumerator incorrectly wrote. I will only be correcting names where there is
question to what it was in the first place.
