Key to notes in parenthesis:
- (name) a name in parenthesis is another spelling for the same
person found in the books. I probably didn't catch them all but
these are the ones I am very sure of. In many cases the surname
was spelled differently within the same reporting period and
sometimes on the same page.
- (memorial pic bio obit) the books contain one or more of these
additional items for the person indicated.
