*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."

These data indicate:

1 female 50-59 1780-1790 = Polly (b. 1786)
1 person employed in manufactures and trades
Polly is too old to have birthed the boy born 1835-40, so presumably he is a grandson.  Also in Munson Township:  Polly's sister, Abigail (CHENEY) HOLT GALUSHA.
