Comments by MAW.
Very hard to read some entries. Impossible at times to define which letter of the alphabet was used by individuals who made entries. Going through roll I was amazed at the number of entries pertaining to military. Noted an influx at one time of people from England...must have been during the time Ellis, Russell, other counties were invaded by British with much money. People were coming from New Mexico, etc., as well as Kansas, to the Kansas State Pentientiary. Towards the end there were numerous entries pertaining to Oklahoma, Oklahoma Territory, etc. They were just not sure what to call the former Indian Territory.
Very interesting data, I believe. Did not undertake Roll No. 2 [1894-1906]. Must return this to Janel so she can finish her research.
