These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 white male 4 or under 1835-1840 = George Winchester (b. 1839)
1 white male 5-9 1830-1835 = William Francis (b. 1832)
2 white males 40-49 1790-1800 = William Burr (b. 1797)
= ?
1 white female 5-9 1830-1835 =
0 white female 10-14 1825-1830 = Varina (b. 1826) 
1 white female 15-19 1820-1825
0 white female 30-39 1800-1810 = Margaret (b. 1806) 
 
1 male slave 24-35 1804-1816 = ?

1 female slave 36-54 1785-1804 = ?
1 female slave 55-99 1740-1784 = ?
1 persons employed in learned professions and engineering
The two white females are in the wrong age classes, so it's hard to believe these are our subjects, but then again, if they aren't, I don't know who this family is or where are subjects are and enumerators do err.
