1820 KY Todd Co. p. 133 Jesse Mann 000100-00100-0-100
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Jesse (b. 1792/3/4)
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Elizabeth (b. 1801/2)
1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."

1832 TN Stewart Co. These CDs contain data from many sources in addition to  just the Federal Census schedules.  All of the above individuals who appeared in the 1830 Census appear again in 1832, though the CD does not specifiy the nature  of these 1832 data.

1 female 5-9 1820-1825 = Daughter A
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Elizabeth (b. 1801/2) 
The male in his 20s is too old to be our subject's child; he could be other kin, hired help, or a boarder.  The list is alphabetical, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possible.

4a.  Census Index:  Selected U.S. Counties, 1840 (Broderbund CD-316 and online at GenealogyLibrary.com):  Jesse MANN not found, even though Stewart Co., TN, gives the appearance of being indexed.  Please see my WARNING regarding use of these databases.

2 male slaves 10-23 1816-1830 = names unknown

No male or female born 1810-20 was in the household in 1820, so they cannot be our subjects' children; they could be other kin, hired help, or boarders.

As expected, Jesse disappears from the Christian Co. Tax Rolls when Todd Co. is formed in 1820.

On the motion of Joseph Hopson ordered that Jesse Mann (Maun?) and Reuben Maun be bound as an apprentice to Col. Joseph Hopson until they arrive to the full age of 21 years and that said Joseph Hopson enter into an indenture with the clerk of this Court against the next term, Jesse Maun is now about years old and Reubin Maun is about nine years old.
I didn't leave out Jesse's age, it wasn't in the book.  Is this the same Jesse, the subject of this page who marries just five years later?
