1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Gabriel (b. ca. 1774)
2 females 9 or under 1800-1810 = Elizabeth (b. ca. 1810)

3.  1820 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com):  Gabriel not indexed, but many names in the images of the Chatham County census are unreadable, both at Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com, mainly due to tape obscurring names in the binding edge.  There is a man indexed, "Harter Collin," who might be Gabriel Cotten.  On the other hand, maybe Gabriel is dead, and his death date is in error.

4.  1830

5.  1840
