Microfilm - M593-1457
Formatted & Published by Joyce M. Tice 2005
Enumerated by Benjamin B. Potter, 11 to 23 July 1870
Post Office : Middlebury Centre PA (This is probably enumerator's PO and not the resident as it should be - Most Tioga County 1870 Census records were in error by using  PO of enumerator instead of PO of resident)
Census records are very often difficult to read because of handwriting, microfilm quality, and spelling issues. Our early census takers were not as well educated as we'd like them to have been, and even the people bearing the names often could not spell them with the same consistency we are accustomed to in this era. The census taker wrote what he believed he heard as well as he could. These have been transcribed for you to the very best or our abilities given the difficulties mentioned. Please be tolerant of what you would consider "mistakes." If you can recognize the names you are looking for, then it is a success. If not, then you may want to find a place where you can view the originals so that you can judge for yourselves. Excessive attention to outmoded spelling issues is the sign of a beginner in family research. Those of you who have been at this a while are well aware of the "spelling errors" in our early records and have learned to take them in your stride. If you want to tell us what is right and what is wrong with the transcription, your notes will be added to the Comment Page
