Notes: Joseph Howsmon is five. William (37) and Abigail (37) Britton Howsmon have had eight children, with son William dying a month after his birth in 1813. The children at home are Letticia 16, John 13, Isaac 11, Mary 8, Joseph 5, Frances 1 and newborn James. There are two extra teenage boys, 18-26, whom I believe to be Williamís younger brothers: Samuel (20) and John (~18). Williamís father died in 1818; I believe his fatherís home is now enumerated under Williamís brother Jacob, 25. This home includes Williamís mother, Martha Frost Howsmon, 61, and Williamís unmarried sisters Hannah 23, Margaret 16 and Martha 14, and another unknown male (26-45 -- although this could be Jacob and the unknown male is 18-26) and unknown female (16-26). Williamís brother Isaac 35 also lives closeby, in a separate home, married with a young son.
