Note: This is likely the household shown as headed by John Bissett and having a total of one m (40-50), one f (40-50), two f (10-15), one m (10-15), and one f (5 -10). The record also indicates that one m (3-4) died in the past year.
Note: s living in Boston in the next household. The entry, however, shows a John Bissett, age 68; his wife Jane, age 54; and daughter Eunice, age 16; all born in Nova Scotia. John and Jane's ages are wrong by at least five years, in opposite directions. This may be due at least partially to an error in the transcription from the original - but an error of this magnitude cannot be ruled out in a census record. The name of the daughter is not clear. It may be Eunice, but if so the age given, 16, doesn't correspond to the Eunice on the immigration list.
