    • Unclear who C. J. Hoskinson is. Age and initials do not fit any of Riley and Martha's children. Could be a spouse of William.

    • Third name is hard to read. Looks like S. F. which age and birthplace suggests would be Riley and Martha's eldest son Stewart Hoskinson.
    Census: 1887 Washington State - Port Blakely, Kitsap Co., WA, Roll: V228_9, p. 6
    Census: 1887 Washington State - Port Blakely, Kitsap Co., WA, Roll: V228_9, p. 6
    CENSUS 1889  Port Blakely, Kitsap Co., WA Find all individuals with events at this location  [10
    • This census very hard to read due to poor image quality. The fourth name in listing of Hoskinsons is especially difficult but could read Stewart which would fit with the 1887 Washington State census entry where it looks like Stewart also appears. Regarding occupations and birth places, the census taker appears to skipped an earlier line resulting in items being misaligned with the Hoskinson names. I have corrected the error in this listing.
    • Census must have been taken before April because it includes Martha who died in April 1899.

    Notes 
    • (John Fisher) is the son of Thomas and Polly (Kells) Fisher, and was the ninth child of a family of 10 children, all of whom are now living, except William, the eldest child. Thomas Fisher was born in Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, March 11, 1791, and died at his home in Blandinsville, in 1868. He settled in McDonough county in 1844, coming from Hancock county, Illinois, where he had settled in 1840. His first wife died, and he was again married to Elizabeth Brown, by whom there were four children. Being a mechanic by trade, or rather a mill-wright, on coming to Blandinsville he built a saw and grist mill there, besides other mills in the county, working at the trade for nearly 20 years. [12]
    • Mathias Fisher is a native of Illinois, having been born in Hancock county, on the 24th of September, 1840. He remained on a farm in that county until eight years of age, his parents then removing to McDonough county and making a settling in Blandinsville township, on section 29, near the present site of the village of Blandinsville. His father rented at first, and remained there until 1856, when he removed to Henderson county, and seven years later to Hancock county, where he remained a number of years, following, as he did in each of the other county's, agricultural pursuits. He again came to McDonough county, and settled near Blandinsville, where he died in 1874. [13]

    • Edith Garrison and David Hill were apparently adopted by Riley and Martha. Edith first appears with the family as a two year old in the 1870 U.S. Census. She is curiously missing from the family in the 1880 U.S. Census. She then again appears with the family in the 1883 and 1885 Washington State censuses. David first appears in 1883 Washington State census as a nine year old, then again in 1885, 1887 and 1889.
