1 male 40-49 1780-1790 = James (b. 1790)
Although he's enumerated without a given name, this is almost certainly our subject and his son, Peter.  It would probably have been deemed unseemly for a young girl to live alone with two males, so I'm not suprised to find Eliza living elsewhere, most likely with her maternal grandparents or an aunt.  Losing three slaves is quite a reversal of fortune.  Perhaps Mary did divorce him.

Is Susanna fibbing about their ages?  Despite the errors, I believe this is our subject, and the clincher is the two teenage females (cf/w 1850).  Son Peter is not yet married, but he's old enough to be working out.
