These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Edward (b. 1782)
1 female 9 or under 1800-1810 = Mary (b. 1808)
2 females 16-25 1784-1794 = Sarah (b. ca. 1787)
= ?
8 slaves all ages in or bef. 1810 = names unknown
Hard to say who the other adult female is.  Probably a sister because with eight slaves, they don't need hired help; and, as they're obviously well off, they've no need to take in boarders.  They are listed three lines below Daniel SWEARINGEN, who is listed one line below Robert CRESAP, who is listed two lines below Thomas CRESAP, who is listed two lines below Jas D. CRESAP.

1 female slave 26-44 1775-1794 = name unknown
Edward not found, as expected.  Widow Sarah is living with her new husband, John COBB.  I cannot read the digit in the first column.  John & Sarah have not been married long enough to have had any children together; all the children here are from Sarah's prior marriage to Edward Otho CRESAP.
