By 1800, sons William, Daniel, John and Joseph had relocated to Kentucky. Sons Edward, James, Perrin, and Rice have their own households in Stokes County. Two males are living with John in that year: one 10-15, and one 16-44. Cornelius, if the dates for him are right, would have been about 19. In addition to John's presumed wife, the are two females, 0-9 and 10-15. Elizabeth would have been about 17, if the years for her are correct. Who was the young girl?
