These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 free white male 16 or over in or bef. 1774 = Gabriel (b. ca. 1762)
2 free white males 15 or under 1774-1790 = John (b. 1785)
= Son A
2 free white females all ages in or bef. 1790 = Mary (b. ca. 1766)
= Daughter A
Listed four lines from brother, Henry STEELY, who is listed next to brother, Jacob STEELY, who is listed next to their father, Ulrich STEELY

1 female 26-44 1755-1774 = Mary
Where is John?  Was he really born in 1785?  Or was he put in the wrong age class by the enumerator?  Is John really our subjects' son?  Also in township:  widowed mother, Anna (__?__) STEELY, and brothers, Lazarus STEELY and Jacob STEELY.  List is roughly alphabetized, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possible.

2 personS engaged in agriculture
*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."
Where are Isabell and Sarah?  I wonder if they weren't born much earlier than believed.  Listed three lines from John STELY/STEELY (310110-21010-0-200), who is listed four lines from George STELY/STEELY (200110-20100-0-200).
