Parts of this record were extremely difficult to read, so my extraction cannot be complete or entirely accurate.  Sarah/Salome is telling a big fat fib about her age (how can she have been married 30 years if she's only 41?); either that or the enumerator made a gross error, both with her are and her name.

The enumerator wrote, "Scott," then put a line through it.  Before she married, Wilhelmina's middle initial was "S."  Did it stand for "Scott"?
