Listed one line below Christina's son-in-law, Samuel LEFEVER (220001-23010-0-000).  Christina has recently been widowed, and she's apparently not living with her daughter, Elizabeth (STONG) LEFEVER, so she is almost certainly the elder woman in son Joseph's household.  The other young man may be Christina's "Son A," who was in her household in the 1800 census.  Joseph appears to be a widower with two small children.  Joseph is the only STANG/STONG in Chester County.
