= Deborah (MILLER) DAVIS (b. ca. 1765?)
It's impossible to be certain who's living with our subjects, but Betsy's father died in 1797, and I suspect her mother and a brother are living with them.  The children born in or after 1800 are too young to be their siblings.  So, did they really have four children in four years?  Or did Henry have a prior marriage?  It's possible given his age difference from Betsy.  Listed next to Henry's father, Col. Henry CLARK (Senr).

The newlyweds, Isaac & Julianna, appear to be living with them (Isaac does not appear as head-of-household in the county).  I would guess that Henry WAGGONER was living with them, but a male that age is living with Henry's father, Peyton WAGGONER.

8.  1850 Census (online at GenealogyLibrary.com):  District No. 2, Christian Co., KY, p. 367, 118/123, enumerated 15 Aug 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Elizabeth CLARK must be fibbing about her age.  William L. FRENCH was their grandson through their daughter Deborah, who died in 1835.  Was Elizabeth FRENCH also Deborah's child?  Henry C. WAGGONER was their grandson through their daughter Sarah; Henry WAGGONER's parents had moved to Missouri by 1850.
