    Notes 

    • (1) A household headed by A. E. CHRISCHANCE is listed in the 1840 census of Paw Paw Precinct, Lee County, IL.

      Listed in A. E.'s household are 2 free white males under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 20 and 30 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 1 free white female under 5 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Assuming that A. E. is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

E. and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of three sons (which sons would have consisted of one son who would have been born between 1830 and 1835, and two sons who would have been born between 1835 and 1840, according to the 1840 census) and one daughter [which daughter would have been born between 1835 and 1840, according to the 1840 census].
