    Notes 

    • (1) Note by compiler: There are several William BARKHURSTs/BARCUSes in the early tax lists and census records of Jefferson County, OH. The compiler is unsure whether all of the information in these notes refers to the William BARKHURST/BARCUS who was the son of the James BARKHURST/BARCUS who died before August 05, 1803 in Jefferson County, OH.

      According to Fred Barkes , William BARKHURST/BARCUS married Sophia STEPHENS on March 2, 1815.

      According to Chad Scott , William BARKHURST was born in 1774, married Sophia, and died on November 1, 1854 in Adena [, Smithfield Township], Jefferson County, OH.

      (2) Two households headed by a William BARCUS are listed in the 1820 census of Smithfield Township, Jefferson County, OH. The following paragraphs describe the household headed by the apparently older William BARCUS.

      Listed in William's household are 3 free white males under 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 16 and 18 years of age; 2 free white males between 16 and 26 years of age; 1 free white male over 45 years of age; 1 free white female under 10 years of age; 2 free white females between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white female between 16 and 26 years of age; and 1 free white female between 26 and 45 years of age.

      Assuming that William is the free white male listed in the 1820 census as then being over 45 years of age, he would have been born before 1775, according to the 1820 census.

      Assuming that William'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 William's household are children of William and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of at least five sons (two of which sons would have been born between 1775 and 1794, and three of which sons would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1820 census) and four daughters (one of which daughters would have been born between 1794 and 1804, two of which daughters would have been born between 1804 and 1810, and one of which daughters would have been born 1810 and 1820, according to the 1820 census). [Note by compiler: One male in William's household was listed in the 16-18 years of age bracket. Presumably that male was also included in the 16-26 years of age bracket.]

      (3) A household headed by William BARKHURST is listed in the 1850 census of Smithfield Township, Jefferson County, OH.

      William is listed in the 1850 census as a farmer who was then 76 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1774. According to the 1850 census, he was born in DE.

      Listed with William is his wife, Sophia, who was then 59 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1791. According to the 1850 census, she was born in MD.
