These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 10-15 1784-1790 = Amasa (b. 1787)
2 males 26-44 1755-1774 = ?
= ?
2 males 45 or over in or bef. 1755 = George Sr. (b. 1733)
= ?
1 female 9 or under 1790-1800
2 females 16-25 1774-1784
1 female 26-44 1755-1774 = ?
2 females 45 or over in or bef. 1755 = Sarah (b. 1742)
= ?
Clearly there are several families living in the household.  It's hard to say just who is living with George & Sarah.  It does look as if George and/or Sarah may have a father and/or mother living with them.  Other ELYs living in Solebury Twp.:  Amos, Hugh, John, Joshua, Joshua Jr.
