However, if you find what you believe is an obvious transcription error, please send a message and let me know. I will either correct it or make a note on the page regarding a possible error.

Totals listed on last page: White males 289, females 290, no colored.  Total = 579.  Number of Dwelling houses 103, Number of families 108. Oct. 24, 1850.

Note: There is a problem with the totals. On page 9 he skipped from family 65 to 67, so there were really 102 families. Plus, it seems to me there were a number of dwellings that obviously had more than one family, and they were not counted that way.
