NOTES:
Christianson, Jens - 1 swine with value of $50 - both the number and value 
     has been crossed out but the totals were not changed.  Surname should be 
     Christensen.
Christiansen, Peter - the surname should have been spelled Christensen and 
     in regard to the number and value of horses and mules it was broken down to 
     reflect 4 horses @ $160 and 8 mules @ $250.
Jensen, J. P. -  all the entries including the name are crossed out, but all 
     the entries are replicated in the last name entered and only one in pencil 
     Yenson, Y. P. 
Sometimes there are errors in the addition of the figures see Hanson, 
     Jens where the total should have been $832 instead of $855.
Littlewood, Wm. F. - would within a year change his last name to Rigby.
