2.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #12 of 55; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1830 TN Anderson Co. Roll 175 p. 175 Ln. 27 Wm Severs 210 010 - 110 010 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 4 or under 1825-1830 = Daniel (b. 1828)
= William H. (b. 1826/7)
1 male 5-9 1820-1825 = John (b. 1824/5)
1 male 20-29 1800-1810 = William (b. 1796/7)

1 female 5-9 1820-1825 = Daughter A
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Matilda (b. 1796/7)
Either William and Matilda were tallied in the wrong age classes, or we have age inflation in the 1850 census.  Listed ten lines below John SEVERS, who is seven lines below George SEVERS, who is three lines below James SEVERS, who is oon line below William SEVERS, Sr.

5.  1860 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #4 of 13):  Neosho P.O., Buffalo Twp., Newton Co., MO, Roll M653_636, p. 810, PN 4, 25/25, enumerated 4 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
William Severs 66 M   Black Smith 750 1448 Tennessee
Matilda   Do 60 F         Do
Frances M Do 15 F         Missouri
Jacob Severs 28 M         Tennessee
This record is hard to figure.  Frances should be Francis, a male.  And why Jacob is listed last, unless he is not Matilda's son?
