    • William S. (50, M, Shoemaker, VA)
      Sarah W. (49, F, VA)
      John (20, M, Laborer, VA)
      Benjamin (17,M, Laborer, VA, attended school within last yr)
      William (14, M, VA, attended school within last yr)
      Virginia (10, F, KY, attended school within last yr)
      James E. (8, M, KY)
      Samuel (6, M, KY)
      Madison (3, M, KY)
      Susan L. (7 mos, F, KY)

      Note that George Madison is listed simply as Madison in this census, and it appears that Susan's name is spelled Sausan L. There is also what appears to be small marks in the column marked "Value of Real Estate Owned" next to William S. Venable's name. I don't know if this means the same amount as the person above him, or simply that there wasn't any real estate for this gentleman. Also, age for William S. would mean that he was born in approximately 1800, not 1804.
