      Comment: Both Reuben & Aaron have males under 10. Reuben
      is bracketed as 16<26 which fits born 1786. In
      1800 he should be a male 10-15. Not in Wilkes.

      Comment: If Silas was 47 or 48 in 1850, then he was 16 under18 in 1820 and 16 Under 26 (extra column for males 16-18. Reuben's comesclosest, but they counted 2 males as 10 Under 16. Surely none in otherhouseholds in Wilkes Co.

      Comment: To the uninitiated: the numbers tell how many in

      to five, then ten years, each span: 0-4, 5-9,
      10-14, 15-19 20-29, 30-39 ... 90-99, 100+
      (described as 0 Under 5, etc.)
