This enumerator was really sloppy.  He had "Mi" for the marital status of all the married couples; I have no idea what it stood for.  The children should all have been labeled stepchildren because they're Florence's children from her prior marriage. This enumerator also seemed to have "O, F, F" for Columns 26, 27, and 28 for everyone, regardless of occupation, so I wonder if George really owned a farm.
