He is the only MIMMS (or variation) in the book.  He does not appear to be our subject (because Robert's children were born in VA as late as 1805/6), but if not, who is he?

5.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312):  not found, as expected, because the 1800 censuses of VA and KY were destroyed, though many tax lists from KY counties are substituted on the CD.

*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."
He is the only MIMS/MIMMS in the county.

Widow Lucy appears to be living with her son, John.  (Both of Mary's parents were deceased in the 1820s, so the older woman is not her mother.)  The ages for the women are a bit off, but certainly Lucy was fibbing about her age by this time.
