1820 Census for Madison County, NY

If this information is correct, the numbers, left to right, mean:
2 males 10 to 16 - Erastus b: 1805 (15 years old); the other is unknown
1 male 16 to 18 - Unknown.
1 male over 45 - Talcott b: 1768 (52 years old)

1 female under 10 - Laura b: 1814 (6 years old)
1 female 16-26 - Abigale b: 1802 (18 years old)
1 female, over 45 - wife Temperance b: CA 1774-1775
Based on the 1800 census, Tallcot's wife would have been 36 to 46 years old, so this narrows her age to 45 or 46.

The last "1" on the right indicates that Tallcot was a farmer.

Children who were in 1800 and 1810 census and not shown in this census:
- William, age 25;
