      (2) A household headed by Benjamin SCROGGIN is listed in the 1820 census of Wayne County, IN.

      Listed in Benjamin's household are 2 free white males between 16 and 26 years of age; 1 free white female under 10 years of age; and 1 free white female between 16 and 26 years of age.

      Since only 2 males are listed in Benjamin's household, both of whom were then between 16 and 26 years of age, he must be 1 of those males. He was born between 1794 and 1804, according to the 1820 census.
