1820 VA Grayson Co. Roll M33_131 p. 43 Ln. 33 Bedsaul John 000100-10100-0-100 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = John (b. 1796/7)
1 female 9 or under 1810-1820 = Sarah (b. 1819)
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Delilah (b. 1797/8)
1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a new, more precise age class.
