  2. ^ a b Flanders and Hahn were elected in 1860, assuming the seat left vacant after Bouligny's and Taylor's terms expired in 1861. Flanders and Hahn were not seated in Congress until the last fifteen days of their terms in February 1863.
  3. ^ There were so many irregularities in the 1868 election that Congress threw it out. Sypher won the second round against St. Martin.
  4. ^ Sypher's 1872 re-election was successfully contested by Lawrence. Sypher lost, but only after the original returns were certified in his favor. After protracted court intervention, Lawrence was declared elected, but just one day (March 3, 1875) remained in the term, and in the meantime Lawrence had lost the 1874 election to Gibson.
