Andorra is a section of Roxborough which is in the North-west corner of
Philadelphia bordering Montgomery County. Roxborough was actually it's own
Township within Philadelphia County before 1854. After the Pennsylvania 1854
Consolidation Act, all townships and districts in the County were included
into the city as it is today. You may want to check the other 1870 census.
There were 2 enumerations that year. That is, there were two census's taken.
I'm not sure if there were two for all States but there was for some states,
Pennyslvania being one of them or at least for Philadephia. On the first
1870 census I got for my relative which ended up being the 2nd enumeration,
there was only names and ages as you indicated on yours. When I found that
there were two taken that year, I went back to NARA in Philly and checked
the other one which was actually the first enumeration. It showed Names,
Ages, Occupation, Real Estate Value, and Place of Birth as well as a box
checked off if parents were of foreign birth.

> I believe I may have found my ggrandmother on the 1870 census. The only
thing the page has is the names and ages of the occupants. It does however
have 7th dist 21st. ward and then it has Andora. Can anyone tell me where
this 7 dist was located at in 1870. Or where Andora is. Thanks
