These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1800-1810 = Son A
1 male 10-15 1794-1800 = James? (b. 1795)
2 males 16-25 1784-1794 = John? (b. ca. 1790)
= William? (b. ca. 1788)
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Charles (b. 1784)
1 female 9 or under 1800-1810 = Rachel (b. 1807)
1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Rebecca
The three males b. 1784-1800 are too old to be Charles and Rebecca's children.  Charles' younger brothers, William, James, and John, were not yet married, and they are the correct ages to be these older males.  Yet, there are three males of these ages in Charles' parents' household, so which household is the one with the brothers?  And are the "extras" additional brothers?  Or who?

As expected, Charles drops off the Christian Co. tax rolls when Todd Co. is formed in 1820.
