Beal, Sam, John Barker in 1800 Fairfield census

John Barker and his wife are both over 45 years old in the 1800 census and have 1 son living with them, age 16-26.

The Barkers live next door to James Long, Sr. James Long had a daughter Sarah born 1780-1790 who married a Barker sometime before her father's death in 1816. I can't help but think that she married the boy next door.

Living only a few households away is Beal Barker and wife, probably a newlywed couple since they have no children. They are both age 16-26. Beal may be John's son. The age and proximity would suggest it. Possibly he is the son who married Sarah Long, but I think she probably married the son who is still living with John because I think I can account for her in her father's household.

Also nearby is Samuel Barker in the 26-45 age range. I think this may be a younger brother to John since he has a daughter in the 16-26 age range and 4 sons.

Farther away is Benjamin Barker. I don't know how he relates. My real interest is in John's at-home son and Beal. Did either marry Saray Long?
