Notes on spelling and handwriting in this census:
Inconsistency in spelling of Parris. Spelled both "Parris" and "Paris" for the same household. Which is preferred?
Caroline appears to be "Carolina" due to handwriting.
Charles is spelled "Charels".
Another entry for William Dickinson:
Several lines above the Parris household the name William Dickinson appears with another household. all information is the same except age and occupations. Here he is listed as follows:
William Dickinson, Age 18, M, Brick Hands, Born in Illinois
Is this the same William Dickinson mistakenly entered twice in the Chandlerville census? The household (August Cham's - sp.?) lists four Brick Hands, all with different surnames.
