    Notes 

    • (1) The federal censuses of GA for the years before 1820 are missing. However, an Oglethorpe County, GA territorial census Index still exists, and John WISE is listed as a head of household in Capt. HUDSPETH's District in that census. See Oglethorpe County, Ga Archives, 1800 Federal Census Index <http://files.usgwarchives.net/ga/oglethorpe/census/1800/index.txt>.

      (2) John WISE is mentioned in the will of his father, Joseph WISE, dated 8 January 1804.

      (3) A household headed by John WISE is listed in the 1820 census of Oglethorpe County, GA.

      Listed in John's household are 2 free white males under 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white male between 16 and 26 years of age; 1 free white male between 26 and 45 years of age; 4 free white females under 10 years of age; 4 free white females between 10 and 16 years of age; and 1 free white female between 26 and 45 years of age. Also listed in John's household are 3 slaves.

      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 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 other persons in John's household are children of John and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 4 sons (2 of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1820, 1 of which sons would have been born between 1804 and 1810, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1794 and 1804, according to the 1820 census) and 8 daughters (4 of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1820, and 4 of which daughters would have been born between 1804 and 1810, according to the 1820 census).
      (4) A household headed by John WISE is listed in the 1830 census of Capt Rayns' District, Oglethorpe County, GA.

      Listed in John's household are 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; 2 free white females between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 50 and 60 years of age. Also listed with John are 6 slaves.

      Assuming that John is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, he would have been born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that John's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, she would have been born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other persons listed in John's household are children of John and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 3 sons (1 of which sons would have been born between 1820 and 1825, 1 of which sons would have been born between 1815 and 1820, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census) and 3 daughters (2 of which daughters would have been born between 1815 and 1820, and 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1815, according to the 1830 census).
