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 take them in your stride. If you want to tell us what is right and what is wrong with the transcription, your notes will be added to the Comment Page

Joyce, I WISH I had found this before searching census rolls.  this has been very helpful to me tracking down some family members. and trying to figure out what happened to them next.  we seem to be concentrated in Spring Hill, Wyalusing, and Tuscarora... Merritt and Rosecrance families....just a quick note , I wanted to leave a comment on the 1860 Tuscarora census... (John Rosecrance and Elijah Merritt were friends who lived nearby each other, also a marriage between brother and sister occurred) , but anyway on number 676 664 there is a name "Muris Elijoh" which should be Merritt, Elijah but the Comment button won't let me in.... but wow,  I can't wait to get the information I need and come see this place. thank you for all your work, your love of this area and the marvelous pictures you have taken.  when I know where the family is buried, I will be there.  charlotte
