Previously Unknown Mayoff Descendant Found in

1920 and 1930 US Census

A search of the complete 1920 and 1930 US census has only revealed one Mayoff family is all of the United States.
Discovering only one Mayoff family is disappointing and raises a number of questions.

[*Accuracy is questioned as an entry for a George Mayoff and family immigrating from Australia appears. A closer look at the handwriting shows unreadable characters in the name, which the Indexer has attempted to interpret.]

A digital image of the entry as it appears in the 1930 census, including the top and bottom of the enumeration page, appears below.

The following is the content of the enumeration.
