1830 Kelly Richard 000 110 - 110 011
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 15-19 1810-1815 = ?
1 male 20-29 1800-1810 = Richard (b. 1800)
1 female 4 or under 1825-1830 = Anna (b. ca. 1830)

1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Harriet 
1 female 30-39 1790-1800 = ?
Hard to say who the additional individuals are.  I wonder if Richard had an earlier wife.
