      Assuming that the other persons in Peter's household are children of Peter and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of six sons [one of which sons would have been born between 1820 and 1825, one of which sons would been born between 1825 and 1830, one of which sons would have been born between 1830 and 1835, and three of which sons would have been born between 1835 and 1840, according to the 1840 census].
