4.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #85 of 276):  Buncombe Co., NC, Roll M432_622, p. 237A, 566/566, enumerated 7 Aug 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
John Whitaker 46 M   Farmer 2000 NC
Sally 42 F       "
Leander 20 M   Laboror   "
Mary A 19 F       "
Margaret 17 F       "
Ma??ida 16 M   Laboror   "
Jane 14 F       "
Martha 12 F       "
Riley 10 M       "
George  8 M       "
Nancy  6 F       "
Rebecca  2 F       "
A secondary source shows the 16-year-old as named Mathilda Amelia (i.e., female).  It's not that unusual for an enumerator to accidentally put down the wrong gender, but a female wouldn't have been given an occupation.

5.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #37 of 40):  Democrat P.O., Ivy & Flat Creek Division, Buncombe Co., NC, Roll M653_889, p. 341B/684, PN 38, 246/246, enumerated 16 Aug 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
John Whitaker 57 M   farming   649 NC
Sarah    " 54 F         "
June     " 22 F         "
Martha   " 20 F         "
Riley    " 20 M         "
George   " 17 M         "
Nancy    " 15 F         "
Rebecca  " 11 F         "
It looks like Jane/June and Martha have each shaved two years off their age.

6.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #7 of 32):  Asheville P.O., Ivy Twp. (No. 12), Buncombe Co., NC, Roll 593_1125, p. 147A, PN 7, 46/47, enumerated 4 Aug 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
Whitticker John 67 M W Farmer   250 North Carolina

Jane has now shaved four years off her age and Martha three.
