  12. [S2499] Thomas Lathrop household, 1790 U.S. Census, Rutland Co., Vermont, number of females is overwritten, apparently with a five and six, with the five appearing to be later. Since this census was actually taken after Vermont became a state in 1791, I am assuming this is because Nancy, who was born in Nov 1791 was initially counted and then excluded.
