| A few notes:
1. Ditto marks, as we know them today, were not consistent in this
document, so I created marks to simulate what they look like on the page.
In the last column, they were not used at all; the last letter of the name
was extended into a line that ran off the page.
2. The child born Sept 29 was unnamed (line 9), there is a long line where
a first name should appear and then the last name James.
3. Where handwriting was difficult to decipher, I made the best guess
4. The very last entry is very faded and was quite difficult to read.
apparently the child was born while out of the county and added later.
5. The last column, titled remarks, seems to contain the names of the
midwives who assisted in the delivery of the child. Or, I think that is
what MW stands for at the end of the first line.
If you have any other questions, let me know.
