Note: In this census, people were asked to state where
their parents were born. I have shown this as, for example,

their birth place if both parents were in the household.

Note: Also in this census, the relationship between each
person and the head-of-household is shown. I have used the
following abbreviations:

"M" at the end of a line indicates Mulatto.
