Notes: Andrew is about age 45 and Mary is about 40, and they have been married about 21 years. Daughter Sarah is 19, John is 14, Abner is 8 and Mary is 4. It is unknown who the extra boy and girl are in Andrew Maiden’s home (a boy 10-16 and a girl 0-10), but they appear to be two more of Andrew and Mary’s children, and must have died young (by 1830 as they are not on that census). The official date of the census was August 7, 1820, with all the entries reflecting that date, which is why Sarah Maiden and Thomas Hay are each listed as living at home with their parents—they will be married November 23rd, 1820.

Mary Passwater Maiden’s brother Zael has already moved from Jefferson County to Scott County (the separate listing for Scott County confirms that the upcoming move for Andrew and Mary to Scott as well is not just redistricting, but it’s likely a short jump). Only daughter Sarah Maiden Hay remains in Saluda. What I believe are brothers of Andrew—James (~40) and Alfred (“Alford” ~37)—are now living in neighboring Lawrence County, with probably at least brother Samuel (~28), but it is unknown who the extra three males are. The other information found on the Maidens and Passwaters is War of 1812 service records (James Maiden, Andrew Maiden and Zael Passwater, all of whom served as privates in Colonel McFarland’s Detachment, Indiana Militia), and 1816 tax roll for Jefferson County lists: James, Abner, Andrew and Samuel Maiden; William Hay; Zael Passwater (see G7). In 1809, Andrew Maiden was an elector of a representative to serve in the legislature of Clark County, Spring Hill township.

There is no census in Indiana in 1810; Andrew and Mary moved from NC to Indiana, apparently first to Clark County (where the Crawfords were too), in 1806 and later to Jefferson County.
