Mississippi - 1878 Copiah and Covington Cos. enumeration of Educable Children

Recently I needed to read line by line through the 1878 enumeration of educable children for Copiah County, Mississippi at FamilySearch. In the process I ended up making a quick access guide to the towns and districts.
Below is both an alphabetical and numerical list - location followed by the image number where the letter "B" began. In most cases this will be the first or second page for the location. I also discovered Covington County, Mississippi began after Copiah. I did not look through Covington's entries but now you know it's there! These records are also accessible through the Mississippi Archives digital archives.
