These data indicate:

1 white female 10-15 1804-1810 = Mary CRESAP (b. 1808)
1 white female 26-44 1775-1794 = Sarah (BRISCOE) CRESAP COBB (b. ca. 1787)
1 female slave 26-44 1775-1794 = name unknown
I cannot read the digit in the first column.  John COBB & Widow Sarah (BRISCOE) CRESAP have not been married long enough to have had any children together; all the children are from Sarah's prior marriage to Edward Otho CRESAP.  Listed 21 lines above John's brother, Gideon COBB.  (There were only 31 households in all of Eddyville.)

1 male slave 24-35 1794-1806 = ?
1 female slave 36-54 1775-1794 = ?
At most, there should be only one male in the 1810-20 age class, unless the youngest one was born late in 1820.  Sarah is fibbing about her age, so is in the wrong age-class.  Listed four lines below John's brother, Gideon COBB
