    Izrael’s 2nd son: Movsha 22   30 Movsha’s wife Khaia (daughter of David)    
         Movsha’s son David Idel Newly born   1      
    Izrael’s nephew [from the] city of Mogilev: Berko (son of Shender) Abugov [a.k.a., Abuhov] 17   25 Berko’s wife Estra (daughter of Izrael)    
    [Berko’s] son Izrael Aria Newly born   ½      
        281 males [actually 252] 

Translator’s Notes:

86 were newly born males, though none are listed between the ages of  8 and 13 (evidently the 1850 census did not include children under the age of four). Fifty-three on the 1850 list are not present by 1858, including 38 deaths (12% of  total), 8 departures, 3 conversion  (who left as well), and 1 disappearance. 22 switched the families with which they were associated. There were 40 fosters sons, between the ages of 9 and 56 (in 1850), and were quite often much older than the “foster parents.” Several times, a family had three foster sons as well as relatives of the foster sons.

  259 females [actually 235] 

Translator’s Notes:

Women were clearly not included in the 1850 revision census list, hence the lack of any women’s deaths being mentioned. Sixty-nine females ages ¼ year to 7 are listed, though none ages 8 to 9. Nine are recorded as having left, and 13 changed families.
