Notes from Enumerator: It was hard to get the deaths as there was nothing to draw it out in the question and very often after passing a place sometime would accidentally have that a death
had occurred in a certain place. I would take a number and afterwards look it up. Those that have no number were servants more boarders or the family had broken up.
