This transcription made from a photocopy. The copy was very faded, as was, apparently, the original. Some sections are *really* difficult to read. Initials are hard to distinguish, I's, J's, T's and F's all look alike, as do M's and N's. Notes to cause of death may have been made after the fact in some instances. As with any transcription, typos are possible. This should not be used in place of references to the original.
[] Indicates transcriber is unsure {}Indicates information destroyed on photocopy





Trans. Notes

The original writer uses a very persona style of spelling (ie., Mary is always spelled Marey) and frequent, unusual abbreviations ( Hu. is Elihu, Alesr. is Alexander, Is. is both Isaac and Isabelle, Geo can be George and Georgina, etc.) The original entry is listed as is with notes on the right as to likely meanings based on the overall occurrence in the record.
