2.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #137 of 218; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 NC Guilford Co. Roll 361 pp. 285A-285B Ln. 28 S. D. Holden 200 010 - 100 010 no slaves 0100000
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 4 or under 1835-1840 = William (b. 1839/40)
= Son A
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Solomon (b. 1810/1)
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Lorvilla (b. 1834/5)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Penelope (b. 1809/10)
1 person employed in agriculture
The only EULISS (or variation) in NC is Peter EULYSS in Chatham Co., which is adjacent to Alamance Co.  This appears to be Peter EULISS (1803-1881) whose age would make him Penelope's brother.
