The enumerator must have had a communication problem with the German families of the Cole Camp area and listed them as they sounded. Poor handwriting also made them difficult to transcibe. Fortunately the correct spellings of many of these names are known and are listed below. Information provided by Homer R.

Their farms were in Williams Township, but near the dividing line. The ages listed in White Township are the closest; those in Williams appear to have been estimates.
