Note 1 - Julia Armstrong, in the age column S B maybe referring to Single Birth.

Note 2 - Juan Bala, Surname may actually be spelled Vala

Note: 3 - There is a Steel family located here on the index, but this person's family could be located on the part of the census that was smudged in the name section.

Note: 4 - I did not locate a McDevitt Family or person on the census index.  It is possible that the family is located in the pages where the names were smudged.
