    Male under 5 (Jos. W.)
    Male between 20-30 (Robert Sr.)
    Female between 5-10 (???)
    Female between 20-30 (Martha)

    Note: I'm not sure who the female is between 5-10. Robert & Marta were married in 1828, so this may be an incorrect notation for a daughter? Or, a daughter that died before the next census?
