This census was taken June 16, 1900 by Lynn B. Mason, Enumerator. 

 1  Given name looks like Phersis, Phersia; might be Thersia (Theresa?)
 5-6  Surname might be Albion
 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.
15  Unable to read given name; looks like "Jhfsh" or "Jhlsh"; first letter 
    might be "I" or "H", or "J".
