The first five children are by Josiah's first wife, Margaret; the last four by Polly, though it's possible that Mary was Margaret's child.  There are some inconsistencies in the ages of the children between 1850 and 1860, in particular, Christina's and Henry's ages seem to have been switched in one or the other of the years.  For neighbors, see this table
