3.  1820 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #3 of 5; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):-
1820 PA Mifflin Co. Wayne Twp. Roll M33_102 p. 183/334 Ln. 67 Samuel Holiday 000210-10011-0-200
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 19-25* 1794-1801 = kin? hired help?
1 male 26-44 1775-1794 = Samuel (b. 1787)
1 female 9 or under 1810-1820 = Daughter A
1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Hannah (b. 1798)
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = mother? mother-in-law?
2 persons engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a "new," more precise age class.
Are we wrong about Hannah's birth year, or did the enumerator err?  Listed one line above brother-in-law, Andrew BRATTON (300241-10012-2-001).

CHAPTER X.
THE BOROUGH OF McVEYTOWN.
p. 600 The settlement of this place was begun by Samuel Holliday in 1755...

Samuel, Adam, John and William Holliday, and two sisters, Elizabeth and Nancy... emigrated to this country about 1745...

At the time of their settlement all the surrounding region of territory was in Cumberland County...

Samuel Holliday erected...

p. 601 ...a grist-mill... on the Juniata River, at the mouth of Mattawana Creek...

The township of Derry was erected in July, 1767, and embraced all of what is now Mifflin County.  The first assessment of the township was made in 1768, and at that time the only grist-mill and saw-mill assessed in the township (now Mifflin County) was the property of Samuel Holliday...

He married Sarah Campbell, who survived him.  They had seven children John, James, Adam, Michael, Samuel, Rebecca and Jane...

The mills were sold to Samuel HOLLIDAY, a son... June 1, 1813... The grist-mill was abandoned... and a new one was erected by Samuel Holliday...  In 1867 it was owned by C. & C.P. Dull... until its destruction by fire, June 1, 1870.

Our subject was Samuel HOLLIDAY who bought the grist mill from his father in 1813.
