ot in census #names

Please take a look at item 108 of the cited materials.  Ot means other color or race.


I first thought as this has been appearing in the messages, that OT meant OKLAHOMA TERRITORY (and it was Indian Territory), but that only would apply though the 1900 census, because if memory serves me correctly, OT would have become OK state in 1907.
