David Ford 59 M   Farmer 700 100 Vermont
Lucretia do 54 F         New York
Amanda   do 25 F         Canada West
Sylvanus do 19 M   Farm Laborer     Mich

Samuel Garrow? 30 M   Hunter     Milan Italy
Henrietta is Ira's child, although she should be nine years old, not seven.  Lucretia is much too old to have a two-year old child, so I'm it may be that Dennis is also Ira's child.  Listed two households from married son, Richard FORD (æ 35, b. MI).
