Children with Elizabeth STEPHENS:
If the birthdates of the four boys are correct, then they are the four males b. 1800-1810 in the 1810 Census, which means William and Abraham had to have been born after 1810.  One of the three girls was born bef. 1810, the other two were born aft. 1810; given her marriage date, Juliana most likely was the one born bef. 1810.

Is the Elizabeth our widow re-marrying?  Is "Polly Ann" our Mary Ann?  1845 seems a late date for her marriage, unless she was the youngest daughter.
