      [Note by compiler: According to the original patent, Hugh PARKS was "of Shelby County, Kentucky" at the time the patent was granted.]

      (4) A household headed by Hugh PARKS is listed in the 1830 census of Scott County, IN.

      Listed in Hugh's household are 1 free white male between 80 and 90 years of age; 2 free white females between 20 and 30 years of age; and 1 free white female between 60 and 70 years of age.

      Since only 1 male is listed in Hugh's household, he must be the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 80 and 90 years of age. He was born between 1740 and 1750, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Hugh's wife is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 60 and 70 years of age, she would have been born between 1760 and 1770, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other persons is Hugh's household are children of Hugh and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 2 daughters (which daughters would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census).
