   (x) James W. Chadduck, b. Feb. 2, 1831, in the Shenandoah Valley, son of Eli and Catherine (Botts) Chadduck, married there, June 12, 1855, Miss Eliza M. Colvin, b. in Culpepper Co., Va. He settled at Nebraska City in 1863, opening a dental office. Chapman. pp. 704-5.
   (y) Cass Co. census. 1856. - Nebraska and Midwest Genealogical Record, Jan. 1899.



   These records, somewhat abbreviated, are from the federal census, 1860, Schedule 3, which bears the heading, "Persons who Died during the Year ending 1st June, 1860,-----" The original manuscript of this Nebraska census was made in duplicate and an incomplete copy is now to be found at the University of Nebraska library. Unfortunately the families were not identified in the records of 1860, as they were in the records of 1870. Nebraska City papers of this period contain very few death notices. An examination of these shows that the deaths were not listed in the census if the party who died did not belong to an Otoe County family, or if the family had removed from the county before the census was taken.(a)
