School Census, 1854

This was found in the Old Steel File Drawer labeled “Early 1900’s.” It seems as though the whole thing was filed at the same time with the Clerk’s Office, but the pages were not put in the proper order. As a result, although it looks as though all of the pages were from 1854, I kept them in the same order they were inside the envelope.

However, I have absolutely no idea what the numbers mean. Additionally, it seems as though there was no particular method used to record the names, as it appears that sometimes the first name was written first and sometimes the last name was written first. Also, as it was all handwritten, and on very old paper, some of it was hard to read or blurred, so I made the best guess that I could on the names. In those cases, I put a question mark next to the name, so that the reader will understand that I am not 100% sure on the reading of that name.
