The slashes in columns 11 and 12 mean William's parents were foreign born.
George's middle initial is definitely, "E," but in all other records I've seen where he has a middle initial, it's an "L."

This enumerator's capital P's are indistinguishable from his capital I's.  If Mary's "condition" actually is "In," it may stand for "Insane" (see legend for 1885 census), but be aware that, back then, "insane" was a blanket term for afflictions we would not, today, remotely consider insanity (e.g., depression, alcoholism, senility).
