These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 free white male 16 or over in or bef. 1774 = Charnel (b. by 1758)
1 free white male 15 or under 1774-1790 = Son A
2 free white females all ages in or bef. 1790 = Martha
= Daughter A
The sixth column is the sum of the first five.  One or both of the children may have been from a prior marriage.  They are indexed as being in Edgecombe Twp., but I see nothing on the pages to indicate township, and all the Halifax records are in one group (i.e., no other townships or towns are given).  Also in Halifax County:  Mathuel CORBIN and William CORBIN.

*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class 19-25.

For Charnel to have been a witness, he had to have been of age (21) in 1779, which means he had to have been born by 1758.
