The 1810 U. S. Census for Virginia, Jefferson County, lists the Adam Link household.(21) The census lists one male under age 10, one male age 16 through 25, and one male age 45 or over. Females included one age 10 through 15, one female age 16 through 25, and one female age 45 or over. This census data appears to agree with the ages of the members of the John Adam Link II household at that time, except for the one male listed as under age 10. The youngest male should have been John Adam Link III, who was born in 1797, making him older than age 10 by 1810.
The 1820 U. S. Census for Virginia, Jefferson County, Lee Township, lists the Adam Link household. (22) Adam Link was listed as a farmer. Household members included one male of age 16 and under 26; one male of age 45 and upwards; one female of age 16 and under 26; and one female of age 45 and upwards. The household included 6 male slaves and 4 female slaves. The census data for the household agrees with the ages of the family members as they should have been in 1820.
The 1830 U. S. Census for Virginia, Jefferson County, Adam Link household, lists one male of age 70 and under 80 and one female of age 60 and under 70. The 1830 census ages agree with the birthdates of John Adam Link II and Jane (Ogle) Link.(23)
