  • Levi - age 10
  • Phebe - age 5
  • Absolom - age 4

James age 55 - Father of Joseph?

James Jackson - age 20 - son-in-law of James? - but anyway not born in the same county

Next door there lives a closely related family:

It is always worth looking at the others on a census page - families often lived in close proximity - it allowed support in hard times and when children were born to a family.

Phebe Stanley age 70 (Joseph's mother-in-law)

Noah Stanley age 25 (Phebe Stanley's child?)

Mary Stanley age 30 (Phebe Stanley's daughter-in-law?) - As she was not born in this county it is probable that she is a Stanley by marriage.
