TRANSCRIBER’S NOTES:

TOTALS - Families – 27; People – 153; U.S. citizens over 21 – seven.

The deputy or assistant marshals who took the census were provided with detailed written instructions covering the various elements of the census along with the directive that it be performed with "absolute accuracy." It was mandatory to have entries for each person listed in columns #1 through #7 and #10. The instructions further stated: "The inquiries in columns numbered 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 19, and 20 are of such a nature that these columns only require to be filled when the answer to the inquiry is ‘Yes’." In these columns where appropriate the enumerator indicated "Yes" with a vertical slash [/]. In addition the directives stated that no report of personal property would be made if under $100.

The census-taker enrolled all of Clarkston on August 11th and went to Newton where on the same day he started the census of Newton which he finished on August 12th.

Some aspects on the 1870 Clarkston census:
1). Probable mistakes - he listed some youngsters attending school at age five or less. See family #1 and #15 for examples of children at ages 5 and 2 cited as "At school." He was not consistent his in listing of those in school, sometimes they were cited as "At school" and at other times as "At home."
On the children less than a year old, the fraction of a year and the birth month listed don’t add up.

2). Names – The handwritten records can be difficult to decipher and this along with the enumerator’s spelling, some extraordinary flourishes in his script and the interpretation thereof could result in a scrambling of some names. This enumerator had a strong tendency to write Danish names that ended with "sen" by listing them as "son." All of the Danish names, except Benson, should have had the "sen" ending. The Benson family 18 had changed their name from "Bendtsen" to Benson.   The James Darley,  family 3,  should have been Johannes Dahle.  His younger brother enrolled at Logan was also listed as a Darley.  Several of the names are slightly different from the form used today.
