*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a "new," more precise age class.

11.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).  One well documented file there gives Benjamin's will:
WILL: Will Book 8, p. 246: 3 Aug 1833: wife, Polly, 65 ac, to go to son, Vinson on her death.  Son, Berry 50 ac.  To son, John, 20 ac. where Mrs. Higgins now lives.  Daughters, Nancy, Elizabeth and Polly, divide other proceeds, sons to make up difference to make equal.  Children of James: Elizabeth, James, Oliver $50 ea.  Heirs of Benj. Jr.
Witnesses: N. Hart, Jno. Chapman
Proved Aug 1833 by Henry Hart and John Chapman.
The question here is whether the 3 Aug 1833 date is the date the will was signed or the date it was proved.  If it was signed on the 3rd and proved in August, 1833, we know he died in August, 1833.
