Bob Letson wrote to regarding the Kent County, Rhode Island 1790 Federal Census of Coventry Town: "I find repeated here a error in the indexing of this census.  I have viewed microfilmed copies of the original pages and find that the following names have been entered incorrectly:

Jeremiah Litson
Michael Litson
Robert Litson

Each of these last names are spelled Letson in the handwritten copy.  The handwriting on this page really does not distinguish clearly between i's and e's, except that if one looks at the writing carefully he discovers that the i's are carefully dotted.  There are no dots over the i's in Litson.  The correct spelling of the names is Letson."
