Some of these names were difficult to read. I tried to cross check the names I was unsure of with other census records, however, it was not always possible to do this. I did the best I could with the spellings. I would like to thank Shirley Houck of the Delaware County Clerk's Office for her assistance. --Clarence Putman, December 2004
