Susannah Poor, head of household. 3m -10. 1m 26-45. 1 female over age 45.

Susannah HADEN and Thomas POOR were married on 14 February 1786 in Goochland County, Virginia.45,186 Thomas POOR1,43, son of Robert POOR and Judith WALKER, was born on 5 January 1762 in Goochland County, Virginia.45 He was christened on 20 February 1762 in Goochland County, Virginia.187,188 He died in June 1811 at the age of 49 in Woodford County, Kentucky.45

Many of the Haden family researchers believe this Thomas Poor to be a younger brother of Susannah's mother Elizabeth, thus she married her uncle. I believe that to be a highly improbable scenario, and that Thomas was much more likely the Thomas born to Robert & Judith Walker Poor.

(Thomas would be 48, Susannah 42; Zachariah, John, Thomas, and William all under 10, Jesse would be 18 & Robert 19, but maybe Jesse was already married; Elizabeth would be just 10, Nancy 15, dau Lucy would be 20 if her birth year is correct so she's likely placed in the wrong column.
