1820 Bobbett Stephen 100010-30200
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1810-1820 = James (b. 1820)
1 male 26-44 1775-1794 = Stephen (b. 1779)
3 females 9 or under 1810-1820 = Daughter D
= Daughter C
= Daughter B
2 females 16-25 1794-1804 = Daughter A?
= Barbara (b. 1796/7)
I wonder if this older girl isn't Stephen's daughter by a former marriage.  He is certainly old enough to have had an earlier wife and Barbara is certainly too young to be her mother.  Living next door to Barbara's brother, George CHRISMAN, Jr., and two doors down from her father.
