Editing the census...

The entry for two-year old Noe Gorsuch in Harlem Township, Delaware County, Ohio, contains an editorial comment apparently made after the returns were submitted. Someone has written in a very small hand "Noah?" by the name, apparently wondering if the intent was Noah Gorsuch instead of Noe. This child appears in household entry 669 for Thomas Gorsuch.

Interestingly enough, entry for household 667 in the same township also contains a Noe and this entry has no such comment wondering if the child was really Noah.
