I have no explanation for the ordering of the children, unless Aaron is Eliza's child from a prior marriage, and the older children were by a prior wife of Jefferson's.  In other words, only Henry is both Jefferson's and Eliza's child together.

Obviously, the enumerator was using "daughter-in-law" to mean something other than its current definition.
