      (2) A household headed by James SIMMONS is listed in the 1830 census of Franklin County, IN.

      Listed in James' household are one free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; three free white females under 5 years of age; two free white females between 5 and 10 years of age; one free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; and two free white females between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Since only one male is listed in James' household in the 1830 census, he must be the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age. He was born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that James' wife is one of the two free white females listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

      The other free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age seems to have then been too old to have been a daughter of James and/or his wife.

      Assuming that the rest of the persons in James' household are children of James and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of six daughters (three of which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, two of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, and one of which daughters would have been born between 1815 and 1820, according to the 1830 census).
