Susan cannot have birthed a child in November of 1938, then another, just six months later, in May of 1839.  Someone's birthdate has to be wrong, or one of them isn't her child.  Based on the 1850 census and the spacing with their siblings, it's most likely that Mary's birthyear is the wrong one and that she was born in 1840, not 1839.

Susan would have been age 46, nearly 47, when George was born.  This is an extraordinary age for any woman to be having a child.  Are the younger children really hers?

If Henry was born in November and is 12 years old here, then his birthyear should be 1837, not 1838.  If Mary was born in May and is 10 years old here, then her birthyear should be 1840, not 1839.
