"Jesaminah" should be Josanna or Josannah; "Elmer" should be Elmira; the second "Jacob" should be Jonathan.  I can't imagine what the enumerator thinks he is abbreviating with his "$" symbol; he uses it frequently.  They are living next door to Daniel & Lydia (HEIMBACH) STROUP

Presumably, Jonathan is out of order accidentally.  If Jonathan is deliberately listed last, we need to rethink his relationship to our subjects.
