Lewis Terry in Habersham County Georgia 1830 Census

The 1830 Georgia Census only recorded the names of heads of household, and number of other members in several different categories. The name Lewis Terry appears in this census on page 28, line 4, dated June 1, with the following information:
Males between the ages of 15 and 20 years -4
Males between the ages of 50 & 60 - 1 (Lewis, if born in 1770, would have been 60)
Females between the ages of 50 & 60 - 1 (If Constance was born in 1765 she would be approximately 65, and appear in the next age group)

Total members of the household stood at 6, with no slaves recorded.

This would fit with the information I have with my family. The oldest male son, George C. Terry would have been 20 years old at this time, with the others being 19, 16 and 14 years old.

Nancy (Terry) Carder was married to Thomas Carder two years previously. In fact we see Thomas Carder on Page 27, living with a female between 15 & 20, and a child under 5yrs.
