    • Census listing for mother Elizabeth Farris' household. Mary Ann presumably one of the two females listed under age 10, although she would have likely been age 10 at then time because it appears the census was taken after the death of Mary's father In July 1855. Were Nathan still alive he would have been listed as the head of the household.

    • Birthplace of Thomas' parents should read Pennsylvania not Kentucky. Also lists birthplace of Lena's father as Kentucky when two lines earlier it is correctly shown as Illinois. Census taker's work appears prone to mistakes given these errors and the many errors in the entry for the family of Thomas' son Charles Fisher which immediately follows in the census.
