I will that my sons John and Isaac do pay to my daughters herein after named the several sums given to each of them respectively at such time as my youngest daughter shall arrive at the age of eighteen years or sooner if they can agree on any kind of property in lieu of said legacy Viz To my daughter Hannah fifty dollars.

To my daughter Ann Sixty four dollars eighty Cents. To my daughter Mary Sixty four dollars eighty cents. To my daughter Pentheselia Sixty four dollars and eighty cents. . . .

      All the remainder of my personal property to be sold and the proceeds to be equally divided amoungst all my children Under the restriction as to my son William as mentioned in my bequest to him.

      (2) A household headed by John FROST is listed in the 1820 census of Crosby Township, Hamilton County, OH.

      Listed in John's household are three free white males under 10 years of age; one free white male between 26 and 45 years of age; three free white females under 10 years of age; one free white female between 10 and 16 years of age; and one free white female between 26 and 45 years of age.

      Assuming that John is the free white male listed in the 1820 census as then being between 26 and 45 years of age, he would have been born between about 1775 and 1794, according to the 1820 census.

      Assuming that John's wife is the free white female listed in the 1820 census as then being between 26 and 45 years of age, she would have been born between 1775 and 1794, according to the 1820 census.

      Assuming that the rest of the persons in John's household are children of John and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of three sons (all of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1820 census) and four daughters (three of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1820, and one of which daughters would have been born between 1794 and 1810, according to the 1820 census).
