Camorn Richard 39 M W Farm Laborer     "
Nearly all the ages are off.  Francis (sic) SPALDING is our subject's widowed daughter, Frances (BLANDFORD) SPALDING, and Charley SPALDING is her son.  "Francis" is not Josephine's husband.  Josephine should have been surnamed BLANFORD, not SPALDING, and should have been placed above Frances, even though she is younger than Frances.  The enumerator should have given Charley's relationship to Frances priority over age in ordering the household, but he didn't, hence the subsequent mis-interpretations of the identies of the householders (not to mention his failure to supply Josephine's surname).  Richard is probably surnamed CAMBRON.
