7 Birth month might be June but can't say for sure; seems to be some
9 Might be Vamberlike, Vamberlake, VanDerlake, Vanderlake, or something
14 Unable to read surname due to overwriting in original census; one
version seems to end with a "t", possibly an "et" or "bet" - this seems
to be the lighter of the writings but can't tell if it was intended to
be included with the final entry.

might be "I" or "H", or "J".
