As you know in those days they added "er" on most female
names. This census taker just took it one step more and added "er" on
some abbreviation for daughter. ( That is my guess, not an expert
opinion.) Probably should not have caused a laugh at the reviewers
office, but guess he/she probably just went ahead and paid the
worker, shaking his/her head.
