1810 KY Christian Co. p. 100 William Rasco 10010-02002-00
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1800-1810 = Son A
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = William
2 females 10-15 1794-1800 = Delilah?
= ?
2 females 45 or over in or bef. 1765 = ?
= ?
I have no doubt this record is of our subject who else could it be? but the numbers are difficult to reconcile.  Was Delilah a child bride?  It would appear that both William and Delilah were tallied in the wrong column.  Could the other women be Delilah's mother, sister, and cousin?  They are on the next line above Micajah FORT, who is four lines above Rachael RASCO.

How could this be our subject?  He should have five sons and no daughters.  The only other RASCO in Christian Co. is William's widowed mother, Rachel.
