Enumerator notes -
Samuel Jenkins was hurt with a lever 8 yrs ago which was the cause of the abscess that caused his death.
Dr. Luce is not a regular physician, had not aught to be allowed to practice from information gained. I think he causes more deaths than he cures.
Alva M. Wilkins was hurt in a log jam floating logs 26 years ago, cause an abscess in his side which has discharged for the most of the time till the fall of '79 then it stopped discharging and turn into chronic consumption.
Alva M. Wilkins died in Pike Twp., Lycoming Co., PA
Fredrick Huber died in Wilmington, Delaware.
