It is unclear who was the last person enumerated in the 1870 census above (it appears that this was a census error in showing him as a Henshaw).

Note that the 1880 census shows a Mary Lee Sterling adopted into this Henshaw family.  She was shown age 18, yet 10 years earlier in the 1870 census there was a male Sterling, age 10, also living with these Henshaws.  He was presumably her brother, apparently both orphaned.
