    Note: This section of the 1861 Blanshard Twp. census has the given names written in the left border of the page and not inside the left-most column where they should be. As a result, most of the names are completely cut off and only a few right-most letters of the name allow us to guess who it is. Also, there are no genders recorded, which makes it more difficult to identify people. Luckily, the names here match the 1871 census very closely and the dates confirm who is who.3
