Maybe this will help someone - have not been able to finish or progress into other years.
The following are notes I had taken from the census of Lancto & associated families. As usual, the spellings vary due to the census taker's guess - so anything that looked like a possibility was recorded. If my health gets back to normal (allowing me to return to work), I will return to researching the area and leave posts according to what I find. My income (or lack of) has held me back in many ways. Wish I had more to share.

Clare/ Clara owned this household (not her husband). In this home was what looks to read like Philma St.GERMAIN 77y; Philma was an immigrant who came from Canada in 1871, she was still, as of 1920, an alien. The hand writing is so sloppy I have to wonder if her last name is St. Furmain. Philma is Not labeled as a boarder of this household, nor a maid,.. she labeled as something that looks like “Moclenis” & there’s some scribble in O/R for household (own or rent). Wonder if she is an abrev. mother-in-law? There is also a boarder in this home: Dennis CHAMPANG who was an immigrant who came in 1870 from Canada.
