2.  Said to be in the 1810 Green Co., KY, Census (p. 253) as Hugh BANDY, but the numerical data for this record show a couple over age 45 with seven children, two age 10-16 and five under age 10.  In 1810, Elihu and Elizabeth were newlyweds and both of them were in the 16-25 age bracket, with at most one infant (two if twins).

The ages of the extra individuals suggest that a widowed daughter may have moved home with her children.  Could the two younger boys be the Yates boys seen in the 1850 Census?  Could the widow be Nancy (b. 1811)?
