*I honestly believe that the enumerator of this census had the worse handwriting that
I've ever seen.  The names with asterisks beside them are ones which were really difficult
to read, so they could possibly be wrong.  A BIG thank you to Mariana for helping me to
decipher all these names!  Now, if we could only uncross our eyes...:)
