    I have a feeling that the boys and girls were mixed up on this census.

    1 female 10-16 [Dtr1??--Hannah & Sarah had already married]
    1 male +45 [Ezekiel]
    1 female 26-45 [Sarah]

    Ezekiel married Sarah about 1783. His father Lewis was already in Laurens Co., SC by 1779 census; thus, marriage probably occurred in Laurens Co., SC. A William McKelvey, Rev. War Soldier, died in Laurens Co., SC at age 70. In 1790, McKelveys are only found in PA and SC.
