The birth dates and places of the children are obviously guesses, and mostly wrong.  Beale MARSH was in KY by 1800, so at most only the first one or two children could have been born in MD.  Benedict and Beale are one child, not two.

*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."
