Printed form (DNA: RG, 29, Census Schedules, Wisconsin, Dane Co., 1860); with blanks filled in by Carl Habich rendered in italics. Columns with no information for entry omitted in transcription. Original record accessed through Ancestry.com, July 2014.
1Tick marks in column indicate that each individual was counted as among the total “no. white males” and total “no. white females” calculated at foot of each census record page.
2Habich noted that R. Emmerson, Anna Peter, and Mary Everson were “Persons over 20 y’rs of age who cannot read & write,” but, given Emmerson’s stated age of “16,” it is possible Habich meant to mark the name above, C. F. Horstmann. Emmerson’s name is at the bottom of the page.
