Children traditionally shown as Daniel & Sarah's:
born in Batavia, Niagara Co., NY:
  1.  Henry G. HOLT, b. 19 Jul 1825; d. 9 Jul 1826
  2.  Julia E. HOLT, b. 3 Mar 1827
  3.  Mary Ann HOLT, b. Apr 1829

born in Somerset, Niagara Co., NY:
  4.  David E. HOLT, b. 26 Mar 1831
  5.  Susan M. HOLT, b. 2 Apr 1833
  6.  (Daughter A) HOLT, b. 1830-35; married or deceased bef. 1850
  7.  (Daughter B) HOLT, b. 1835-40; married or deceased bef. 1850

Children apparently Nancy's:
  8.  Josephine HOLT, b. 1845/6, MO
  9.  Frances HOLT, b. 1847/8, MO
10.  Albert HOLT, b. 1848/9, IL
11.  Emma HOLT, b. 1850/1, IL; m. Ephraim KINNIE
12.  Edward HOLT, b. 1857/8, IL

Given the gap between the births of Susan and Josephine, I think we may presume that all of the children in the 1860 census are Nancy's.  The question then remains as to which are Daniel's biological children and which are adopted (i.e., from Nancy's earlier marriage).  Are the children born in Missouri actually Nancy's (i.e., Daniel's stepchildren)?

Child with Mary:
13.  [Isabelle] "Bell / Belle" HOLT, b. 1867/8, IL

1830 NY Genesee Co. Batavia Roll 90 p. 328 Line 22 Daniel Holt 000 110 - 200 010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 15-19 1810-1815 = ?
1 male 20-29 1800-1810 = Daniel (b. 1805/6)
2 females 4 or under 1825-1830 = Mary Ann (b. 1829)
= Julia (b. 1827)
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Sarah 
The teenage boy is too old to be their son.  Listed next to Sarah's father, Gurdon HUNTINGTON

1 male 10-14 1825-1830 = ? 
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Daniel (b. 1805/6)
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Daughter? B
2 females 5-9 1830-1835 = Daughter? A

2 females 10-14 1825-1830 = Mary (b. 1829)
= Julia (b. 1827) 
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Nancy? (b. 1818/9)
1 female 30-39 1800-1810 = Sarah? (b. 1804-10)
1 person employed in commerce
I was hoping the numbers from the 1840 census would show whether Daniel's wife at the time was Sarah or Nancy.  Unfortunately, we have two older females in the household, each the right age to be Nancy or Sarah!  Certainly, the female in her 20's is too old to be Daniel's daughter, so one of the two older woman has to be hired help, a boarder, our some other kin.  No male born 1825-30 shows up in the household in the 1830 census, so this boy would not appear to be Daniel's child, which raises the question whether the two youngest girls are his children.  It does appear that another adult woman, with a son and perhaps one or two daughters, is living with them.  Listed 18 lines from Sarah's father, Gurdon HUNTINGTON

5.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #16 of 18):  Fairhaven P.O., Fairhaven Twp., Carroll Co., IL, Roll M653_159, p. 999, PN 173, 1266/1172, enumerated 12 Jul 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen:

Edward    "  2 M          "
Sylvester Carter 19 M   Farm Labor     NY
Alfred Thompson 18 M         Ohio
The question here is:  which children are from their earlier marriages and which are from this marriage?  Listed next to Daniel's widowed mother, Abigail, who is living with Daniel's half-brother, Lucien GALUSHA, in one direction; and, in the other direction, listed five households from Daniel's brother, Elijah HOLT.

The 1830 census shows them still in Batavia, so Mary Ann's birthplace is incorrect.
