      3 male children and 2 female children
      The 1840 Murray Co., GA census for Elizabeth fits this; there are 3 female children, but one and Elizabeth could be the marriages.

      This family should be on the 1830 GA census; they may have moved to AL by 1840. The father would have been at least 22 by 1821 and born by 1799/1800, would be about 30 in 1830 and about 40 in 1840.
