*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.

According to the law suit brought by husband of Elizabeth Chambliss for Elizabeth and her two brothers (Peter Corbin Chambliss and John S. Chambliss) in Equity Court of South Carolina in 1813, Elizabeth Corbin Chambliss was alive at the time of her mother's death (1800) and died soon afterward (perhaps 1801).
Plus scanned image of a document kindly shared by her and my transcription of it:
State of Mississippi |
Jefferson Cty        |
This day personally appeared before the undersigned [??] of the Justices of the County Court for Jeffercon Cty Thos Chambliss, Miss Mary Chambliss and Samuel Chambliss Minor heirs of Peter Chambliss Decd And acknowledged that they wish Peter C. Chambliss appointed their Legal Guardian
Given under my hand and Seal this 28th April 1828.
Jno. L Erwin [Seal]
The above does not rule out that there were other minor children still living because, when multiple children were orphaned, it was not unusual for them to be assigned different guardians.  Note that a child was considered an orphan and had to be assigned a male guardian, even if its mother was still living, because women had no legal status to act on behalf of their children.
