      (5) A household headed by Asa BALLARD is listed in the 1830 census of Stokes County, NC.

      Listed in Asa's household are 3 free white males under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 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 Asa is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Asa's wife is the free white female 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 free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 15 and 20 years of age seems to have then been too old to have been a daughter of Asa and/or his wife.

      Assuming that the rest of the persons in Asa's household are children of Asa and/or his wife, those children would have consisted on 4 sons (3 of which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1830 census) and 1 daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1830 census).
