These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 free white males 16 or over in or bef. 1774 = Stephen
1 free white females all ages in or bef. 1790 = wife?
I doubt this is our subject, who has probably passed away by this time.  This is the only Stephen JONES in SC.
