      (3) In 1800, a Benjamin HOLDREN of Frenchtown, Hunterdon County, NJ, and his son Dennis, both cordwainers (shoemakers), were accused of assaulting Jacob ARNWINE. See Hunterdon County, NJ Court of Common Pleas, Book 16 (1800-1803), pp. 116, 125, 126, 316, 322.

      (4) A household headed by Dennis HOLDEN is listed in the 1820 census of Logan Township, Dearborn County, IN.

      Listed in Dennis' household are 3 free white males under 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white male between 16 and 18 years of age; 1 free white male between 16 and 26 years of age (who is presumably also included in the 16-18 age bracket); 1 free white male over 45 years of age; 1 free white female under 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 16 years of age; and 1 free white female between 26 and 45 years of age.

      Assuming that Dennis 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 Dennis' 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 Dennis' household in the 1820 census are children of Dennis and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of five sons (one of which sons would have been born between 1802 and 1804, one of which sons would have been born between 1804 and 1810, and three of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1820 census) and two daughters (one of which daughters would have been born between 1804 and 1810, and one of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1820 census).
