** Transcriber's Notes **

Please Note: The names of the persons listed in this census for this institution were for the most part, quite readable despite lightness and fading of the handwriting. The supplied birth months (many birth months were left blank in the original census), birth years, and ages, were very difficult to read due to lightness and fading; please exercise caution and be aware that this information was very hard to read/interpret. What marks have remained as "visible" may possibly take on a much different look than what was originally intended by the Enumerator.
