      (4) Tennessee, Compiled Census and Census Substitutes Index, 1810-1891 [database online], Provo, UT: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 1999:

      Name: Samuel Frost
      State: TN
      County: Anderson County
      Township: No Township Listed
      Year: 1805
      Record Type: Tax list
      Database: TN Early Census Index

      (5) A household headed by Samuel FROST is listed in the 1830 census of Anderson County, TN, near a household headed by his son, Lewis FROST. [Samuel's surname is listed as FREST in the index to the 1830 census.]

      Listed in Samuel's household in the 1830 census are 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 50 and 60 years of age.

      Since only 1 male is listed in Samuel's household in the 1830 census, he must be the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age. He was born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Samuel's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, she would have been born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other person in Samuel's household is a child of Samuel and/or his wife, that child would have consisted of a daughter who was born between 1810 and 1815, according to the 1830 census.
