There was a male child in this family named Georgus, born 1839 and died 1840 , I have often seen that a child born later into the same family is given the name of the deceased child; it is with this speculation that I place this George Hommertzheim as a child in this family.

This Mary age 19 and the Robert Mitchell, age 17, in hh are also shown to have been in school during the past year.
