These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 4 or under 1835-1840 = Son B
= Son A
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Charles
1 female 5-9 1830-1835 = ?
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Sarah
The girl was born before Charles and Sarah married.  Did he have a child from a prior marriage?  Listed one line above Charles's father-in-law, John STROOP/STROUP

3.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Sarah is living with her second husband, with no children born before 1840.  So, did Charles and the children die or did Charles and Sarah divorce and he took the children?  The former is much more likely than the latter.
