For two individuals, clan affiliation was unknown at the time the roster of eligible voters was prepared:

1. Eldridge H. Brown

2. Samuel Nichols

Nichols was the son of the Rev. Smith Nichols and Mary Warpole Nichols, and was subsequently assigned to or adopted into the Porcupine Clan. Brown was the illegitimate son of Matthew Brown and Susannah D. Zane. As Susannah Zane’s mother was a Seneca, Brown was technically outside any line of Wyandot clan descent, but was considered to be a Wyandot nonetheless. A Civil War veteran, he was a prominent and respected member of the tribe, and was subsequently assigned to or adopted into the Deer Clan. In later years he would become the friend and principal informant of William E. Connelley.

The total number of eligible voters was just 76 individuals.
