Note: On the original record there are 12 columns. I eliminated the Residence column as all are listed there as Greenup Co. KY EXCEPT David A. Jamison whose residence is listed as Missouri. I eliminated the Place of Death column as all are listed Greenup. There was one last row, which was illegible on my copy. The last column of additional remarks did not appear on the original, but was added by me.

MS column reflects the marital status. On the original record, this column is titled "condition". S=Single;

M=Married W=Widow or Widower
