I also posted this at the Cross Family Forum also.

1 Male 10-15 1 Female 10-15
1 Male 16-25 2 Females 15-25
1 Female 26-44
1839 James Cross applied for a Government Land Patent in Posey Co. this was for 40 acres at Vincennes, IN

James Cross’s wife has been married before or other family members are living in same household.

Ruben Anderson Cross applied for 2 Government Land Patent in Posey Co. IN 8/1/1839 for 40 acres each at Vincennes, IN.

Ruben Cross b: aprox 1815 KY. Also Ruben would only have been 18/19 years old.
Not likely he would have had this many children.
The older children were probably the children of Polly Hays by William R. Hays.
