The only other STONG in Worcester Twp. is Conrad's brother, Philip STONG, Jr.  Brothers Henry STONG and Jacob STONG are in Lower Salford Twp., and John STONG is in New Hanover Twp.  These five brothers are the only STONGs in Montgomery County.  (This census marks the first appearance of the Huntingdon County STONGs who do not appear related to the Montgomery County STONGs.  There are three STONGs in New England, including Ebenezer.  There are no STANGs in the entire 1800 census.)

*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."

2 persons employed in agriculture
Abigail is too old to be the mother of the children in the household; it's most likely they are our subjects' grandchildren.  Listed nine lines below son, Isaac STANG, who is six lines below son, John [W.] STANG.

8.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #13 of 32):  Horsham Twp., Montgomery Co., PA, Roll M432_800, p. 45A, 82/87, enumerated 5 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Lewis Stong 32 M   Farmer   Pennsylvania
Nathan Stong 30 M   "   "
Mary Stong 28 F       "
Abigail Stong 73 F     7000 "
Elizabeth Stong 25 F       "
Mary and Elizabeth were not in the household in the 1830 and 1840 censuses, so they cannot be Abigail's daughters.  Nathan is said to have had wife, Mary, so it's a fair guess his wife is the Mary here.  On the other hand, Mary could be Abigail's unmarried daughter, in which case she's telling a whopping fib about her age.  I don't know where Elizabeth fits in. 

9.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #23 of 34):  Hatboro P.O., Horsham Twp., Montgomery Co., PA, Roll M653_1143, p. 267, PN 81, 599/599, enumerated 24 Jul 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Abigal Strong 85 F   Widow     Penna
Mary      " 59 F         "
Listed next to son, John "STRONG" (æ 50, b. PA, wife Margaret).
