Given Susan's youth and the 11-year gap between Abram and John, it appears Susan is David's second wife.  Either that, or Peter and Abram are not David's children, which is supported by the fact that I can't find David as head-of-household in 1830 or 1840.

The question here is whether Reuben was listed out of order inadvertently or deliberately.  Given that we are in the wake of the Civil War, which left many an orphan, I'm going to assume he's not.  Listed five households from Susan's sister, Delia (STROUP) PLATT.
