Maddox, Edwin M. Simms, Catherine J. 19 Nov 1835 Richmond City
Yarrington, Robert W. Maddox, Cathrine [Mrs.]  1 Apr 1839 Richmond City
Surely the extractor has mis-read "Richd" as "Robt" and "M." as "W."

These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 white male 20-29 1810-1820 = ---
0 white male 30-39 1800-1810 = Richard (b. 1807/8) 
1 white female 20-29 1810-1820 = Catherine (b. 1818/9)
1 female slave 10-23 1816-1830 = ?
1 persons employed in manufacture and trades
Either Richard is in the wrong age class, here, or his age is wrong in the 1850 census.  Still, there's little doubt these are our newlyweds, especially given Richard's occupation.

Surely it's "Ettinger" who's insane, not the salesman!

"Carolina B." should be Arabella D.  Is this enumerator error?  Phonetically, it could be (say both out loud and notice the similarity).  Or did Arabella opt for a more elegant name as she grew up?

E. P. ASHBURN appears to be a widowed Eliza Page (YARRINGTON) ASHBURN.
