1.  Anon.  1966.  Marriage Index:  Ohio, 1789-1850.  Liahona Research, Orem, UT (Broderbund CD-400):
Brooks, Emanuel Stropes, Elizabeth 19 May 1836 Jackson Co.

2.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312):  they should be in PA, but I can't find John, at least not as head-of-household.  It appears our subjects either were not yet married or were newly-wed and living with kin.

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313):  not found, but the 1810 census of Ohio was lost (except for Washington Co.).

*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 is daughter, Lydia (b. 1806)?
