NOTE John Foster appears on two separate pages of the census in the area – show both

John Foster
Free White Persons:

Males Under 10: 3 (Frederick, John M. Thomas, Jared – so one of these were born after 1800)
Males 10 thru 15: 1 (I expect this to be Jeremiah – perhaps as he died first?)
Males 45 and over: 1  (John Foster)
Females Under 10: 3 -?
Females 10 thru 15: 3 -?
Females 1 thru 25: 1  (Nancy Foster Hames – or was she married by 1800? – check other family records)
Females 26 thru 44: 1 (Mary McElfresh Foster)

 

Number of free white males under age 10: illegible
Number of free white males age 10–16: 7 – this must include the three males <16 from 1790 census and four more?
Number of free white males age 16–26: 0
Number of free white males age 26–45: 0
Number of free white males over age 45: 1 – John himself, the next oldest male in the household is <16.
Number of free white females under age 10: 3 – All three new to the household since the 1790 census.
Number of free white females age 10–16: 3 – Must be three of the six from the 1790 census.
Number of free white females age 16–26: 1 – One more of the six form 1790.
Number of free white females age 26–45: 1 – Mary McElfresh Foster
Number of free white females over age 45: 0
Number of all other free persons: 0
Number of slaves: 0

Four of the six females enumerated int he 1790 census are accounted for in 1800.  Two others, married off or deceased?

It is a little clearer now that John and Mary Foster have taken in children from another family.  Who are they?  Theories?
