Post Offices in Wyalusing Township  in 1870  - There were several Post Offices in Wyalusing in this year, around the little villages. Also residents near the boundaries picked up their mail at Frenchtown in Asylum Township, or Spring Hill in Tuscarorra.   There was no rural delivery until 1903.   Be sure to read You Gotta Know the Territory for more information to help you understand this area and time. On this census, the pages are arranged by Post Office - below.
Census records are very often difficult to read because of handwriting, microfilm quality, and spelling issues. Our early census takers were not as well educated as we'd like them to have been, and even the people bearing the names often could not spell them with the same consistency we are accustomed to in this era. The census taker wrote what he believed he heard as well as he could. These have been transcribed for you to the very best or our abilities given the difficulties mentioned. Please be tolerant of what you would consider "mistakes." If you can recognize the names you are looking for, then it is a success. If not, then you may want to find a place where you can view the originals so that you can judge for yourselves. Excessive attention to outmoded spelling issues is the sign of a beginner in family research. Those of you who have been at this a while are well aware of the "spelling errors" in our early records and have learned to deal with them. If you have a comment that you think is important for a particular entry send it to me with the EXACT page URL and I will place your note at the bottom of the page.
