1880 BRACKEN CO, KY

From: SHERRY
           "Sherry Mazzetti" <sherrymazzetti1@prodigy.net>

 E. D. = Enumeration District.  Bracken County ranges from E. D. 7-15.  I
have included the name of the District whenever it is listed at the top of
the page.  This is followed by page number.  As an example, E. D. 7-3 means
Enumeration District 7, page 3.

 I have not included the sex of the individual unless I was not certain from
the name alone.  There is some info regarding education and the like
indicated by tic marks that I did not copy here.  I recommend that anyone
interested in a particular family check the online originals.

ELIZABETH WELLS, 9, DAUGHTER, KY, KY, KY

[I think the enumerator started to write "Sellers" before William's name.
He is a Sellers, but whether the letter stands for a first name or part of
last name, I cannot be sure. Also think there is a Sellers/Patterson
connection here, as Thomas Patterson, E. D. 7-19, has a Wells grandson.]

other married SELLERS women.  SHERRY
