Castle Grove was particularly difficult to transcribe. Joanne sent the following note that gives some idea of the degree of effort that she puts into preparing these records for you:

I am working on Castle Grove. It is a mess. Even when he accidently spelled something correctly, the writing is not readable. I am working with the 1885 listing, the 1925 census, the 2 histories, and the WPA cemetry book to try to decipher the census. It is taking much longer to enter but I am doing the best I can. Accurately transcribing the census is not at issue here--giving you anything of value to put online is a real challenge. The Castle Grove cemetery records that we have are very good (some additional family information included) so that helps.
