12.  (Son B) LYON, b. 1790-1800

Something's not right here.  The three boys born between 1774 and 1784 do not appear in the 1790 census, but do appear in 1800.  The discrepancy reads as though William married for a third time between 1790 and 1800, and that some of the children in the 1800 census are those of the third wife from her previous marriage.  Yet, the birth dates of the first 10 children read as though they came from a family bible, which surely would indicate who the parents were.  So, CAVEAT EMPTOR, there's something wrong here.
