!In the index to the census, usually only Head of Households are listed.
Elizabeth J. Baker is listed in the index. But on the page where she is listed as Line #1, no new number for number of household is given, making it seem as though she's part of household #552--Jeptha & Nancy. Since she is 14 years old, this makes more sense than that she was Head of Household.
