4949[Blank – end of the Newton census.]
I certify that I have this day completed the enumeration of the district assigned to me, and that the returns have been duly and truthfully made in accordance
with the Law and my oath of office.
Dated: Newton June 29th 1880 Enumerator.” [signed] Peter Christensen


Totals— Census enumerator cited 48 different dwellings and families, but because of his duplicate numbering, this has to be expanded to at least 54 families and dwellings, accounting for 304 persons.

Some errors, omissions and aspects of the above census:
1). Family #2 –Peter E. and Rachel Benson (both in their late teens) were listed in col. #7 as being born within the census year. The entries in col. #7 should have been made in col. #13 as married during census year.
2). Under family #11 Mary Griffin was marked as both married and a widow.
3). *14 begins errors in numbering dwellings and families. From #1 through #19 the consecutive numbering was correct, but following #19 “Joanna Welchman,” the enumerator used #14 for the second time and continued his numbering consecutively to the end of the enrollment (making two #14, #15, #16, #17, #18 and #19).
4). Under the second #16 (Frank Parsons) there was no occupation listed in Col.#13.
5). Under family #20 Christian Andersen was listed as married, but Hanna, cited as his wife, was not checked as married.
6). Under Family #20 last child Sarah Ann shown with no relationship to head of family or father.
7). Under Family #32 Magaline Lusley (Loosle) in col. #11 (Widowed, divorced) the entry was a capital “D” showing her marital status as divorced.
8). Under Family 34 the last entry “Christine Barker” was the daughter of Peter Benson recently married to John H. Barker in 1879 but living at the home of her parents.
9). Under Family #35 for daughter “Mary C.” no relationship to head of family was noted.
10). Under Family #38 the enumerator had nine-year-old Ruth N. as both single and married.
11). Under Family #39 Infant Ezra E. Jacobs should have been listed as the son of the head of household.
12). Under Family #44 Hannah Barker (maiden name Johanne Jensen) was the last plural wife of John H. Barker, married in September of 1879, and living apart from the rest of the family in a separate dwelling.
13). On Family #48 Mary Christensen was listed as head of family and married with no other relationship for this plural wife of the enumerator. In a similar situation with the second #18 (John Jenkins families) wife Ann was head of family and also cited as another wife of John Jenkins. But with #48 Mary was not cited as the plural wife of Peter Christensen the enumerator. Nor was she cited as widowed or divorced. Possibly this reveals in part the status and mind set of the enumerator who had been excommunicated from the Mormon Church. The formal charge was the taking of plural wives but was also closely associated with his serious land dispute with the local bishop and not following church counsel.
14). Apparently the census taker took the position that a family consisted of the individuals living in one dwelling.

Blank Columns:
1). Starting with family #9 the enumerator began using ditto marks [“] for country-of-birth columns but still left some of the country-of-birth columns blank. He also used initials and abbreviations.
2). In column #13 the enumerator missed marking the “keeping house” for the second #15 (Frank Parson home) and families #30, #35, #37, #40, #41 and #46. In some polygamist families there was more than one wife listed as keeping house.
3). For children at home there was very few column #13 “At home” or “At house” responses with no ditto marks.

1). Under family #6 the Siter should be “Seiter.”
2). Under family #17 the Jinkins should be “Jenkins.”
3). Under family #32 the Lusley should be “Loosle.”
4). Family #33 Jorgensen name was soon changed to Johnson.
5). There was a wide range in the spelling of given names such as “Ellizabeth,” “Sofonia,” “Ema,” “Hanah,” “Chatherine,” etc.
