1 male 9 or under 1800-1810 = John P. (b. 1807)
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Peter (b. 1784)

1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Catherine (b. 1788)

2 males 9 or under 1810-1820 = Samuel (b. 1819)

1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a "new," more precise age class.
There is a great deal wrong with the numbers for this household, yet this record has to be of our subjects.  Peter's father is still living and is not found as head-of-household.  Also in Perry Township:  Peter's brother, John TROUB
