This is Peter and Hester’s last census, as there is no census is Ohio in 1810 and Peter dies in 1815 at age 80, just after the deaths of four of his six sons. Peter ~65 and Hester ~62 have one son at home, but it is not known for sure which one this is. However, I did find a reference to Joseph in Ohio-Northwest Territory-Great and Little Miami River in 1800, and a reference to James, Joseph, and Peter in OH-Army Lands-Va Military Reserve in 1801. It is my guess that Henry may have some developmental problems, as he is the only adult son not to sign the petition for the new state of Ohio, and he never marries, so I think he is the one at home at age 40. In 1800 son John is ~35, his wife Sarah 33, and they have six children: Peter 13, Elizabeth 10, Sarah 7, Adah 5, Mary Jane 2 and newborn Rebecca, plus one extra unknown boy. This is John’s last census too: he moves to Ohio (Fayette) about 1807; there is no census there in 1810, and John dies unexpectedly in 1814, at age 49, the year before his father. Son Peter lives near by with his wife and four young children, and he moves to Greene County OH with his father and brothers Henry and Joseph in 1803.

Peter and sons Joseph, John and Peter petitioned for the new state of Ohio in 1776-1780. Peter laid claim to 400 acres in Ross County OH in the early 1800s but ran into some legal problems as it turned out someone else had previously “entered marks.” The family did indeed lose this land, after several legal battles, but were able to reassert their 400 acre claim on other land in 1807. On June 23, 1802, Peter bought lot #11 in Washington Township PA, and sold his Fayette, PA land in 1808 for $1700. Although in 1790 the family was listed in Bullskin, and now in 1800 is in Washington, I believe this is the same place (in 1790 the “town” was Washington).
No census in Ohio in 1810
