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

Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project
From Joyce M. Tice's Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project
All Pages of SRGP are presented with the expectation of RECIPROCITY. If you are descended from these people, Joyce needs your family updates to the PRESENT. 
Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project was founded in 1992 by Joyce M. Tice. Its purpose is to trace ALL the ancestors and ALL the descendants of all persons who lived in and near Sullivan and Rutland Townships in Tioga County PA. This includes people (descendants) to the present day wherever they live, and ancestry on all lines, female included, as far back as we can go.  The project is about community and is extensive in its scope. It traces the pioneers in their immigration from New England and elsewhere, and it traces the emmigrations to the west. At this writing there are over 77,000 individuals in its database with connections to Sullivan and Rutland Townships. Some people lived their entire life here and others spent only brief time in the communities of this locale. The project includes them all.  Ultimately it will include as much life history on each person as can be collected inlcuding, census, tax, church, Bible, school, newspaper, military, birth-death-marriage records as can be found - also photographs. If you are using these pages and using the information included, it is expected that you are willing to reciprocate by providing information to this vast community genealogy. I have helped thousands of researchers by presenting and developing this massive site, and I ask that you help me in return with my community project by providing me all that you have available in this scope. This 1880 census has been annotated by me with the ID for the person in the project and burial location if I know it. When you write me please reference both the SRGP ID and the particualr web page where you found it. I am looking forward to a mutually beneficial exchange and the further development of this massive library to preserve the memory of the lives of our community predecessors . Joyce M. Tice
