1.  Family Group Sheet compiled by Georgie Tolleson and Betty Ann (Matthiesen) Cogliati.

2.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313):  not found, as expected, because unmarried men were not usually listed as heads of households.  Also, the 1810 Census of TN was lost.

3.  1812 Warren County, Tennessee, Tax List of Joseph Elledge:
Enumeration returned by Joseph Elledge, Esq...
Hugh French...

Joseph ELLEDGE is Hugh's brother-in-law.

4.  Marriage Index: IL, IN, KY, OH, TN, 1720-1926  (Broderbund CD-2):
French, Hugh French, Sally KY Christian Co. 24 May 1814

5.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1820 (Broderbund CD-314):  not found in Christian Co., KY.  There was no Federal Census in MO because it was not yet a state, but that is probably where Hugh was.  There were two Hugh FRENCHes in Adair Co., KY, and a Heugh FRENCH in VA, but I don't believe any of these are our subject.

6.  Family Quest Archives:  Missouri Federal Census 1830:  Scott, New Madrid, Wayne, Callaway, Boone, Howard, Cooper, Saline, Lafayette, Clay, Jackson, Randolph, Madison, Ralls, and Ray Counties.  Heritage Quest CD M19-73 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1830 MO Boone Co. Rockyfork Twp. p. 103A/104B Hugh French 101 000 100 - 121 001 000 - 000 000 - 000 100
On the film, pp. 103B and 104B have been interchanged which also means to double-check any other page on the film to be certain the two sides match.  You can tell because Hugh's page includes the tally for the township.  These data indicate:
No., Race, Gender  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 white male 4 or under 1825-1830
1 white male 10-14 1815-1820
1 white male 40-49 1780-1790 = Hugh
1 white female 4 or under 1825-1830
2 white female 5-9 1820-1825
1 white female 10-14 1815-1820
1 white female 30-39 1790-1800 = Sarah (b. 1800) 
1 female slave 36-54 1775-1794 = name unknown
Without knowing the birthdates of any of the children, it's impossible to place them in this table.  Listed two households from Isaac DAVIS, Sr.
