    1. Koonce, George - age 52, State Senator, Real Estate $3500, Personal Estate $1000, born in Ohio
    2. Bettie E. - age 31
    3. Emma - age 23, born in Illinois
    4. Alice R. - age 18, born in West Virginia
    5. Charles -age 9, born in West Virginia
    6. Howard - age 6, born in West Virginia
    7. Estella M. - age 3, born in West Virginia

    Note: those kids born in "West Virginia" were born when the area they lived in belonged to Virginia (pre 1863). Also, I'm not sure who this "Emma" is - age does not quite match any of the children.
