Found this 1820 census of Botetourt......right Jacob as far as you know? Catherine was already married of course.

Do you have copies of the court records that Rena posted below?

Found Jacob's property tax records for 1820, 1819, 1818, 1817 so far. What it tells me, along with his 1820 Census record is this:

1) After looking at pages of the taker's census' records its clear that Jacob had a son between the ages of 16-18 and one between 19-26. The taker incorrectly noted males for column's 3 and 4 seperately (technically he should have had 1 male 16-18, two males 16-26 counting the 16-18 year old twice). The 16-18 year old could be the Jacob mentioned in the article you linked (assuming he was born in 1802 as they stated).
2) Additionally, I found that Jacob was taxed for 2 male adults besides himself on the 1820 personal property tax records. The census shows the oldest two males as mentioned above. This means the 16-18 year old was 18 rather than 16-17, for he wouldn't have been taxed younger. This conjecture is further supported by the 1819 personal property tax record for Jacob, for the 17 year old is not taxed, but the older male is (18-25 in 1819). In 1818, this older male isn't counted, so the older male could either be born in 1801 (19 yrs in 1820) and be a son of Jacob, or this could be Catherine's husband Daniel (when was he born anyway?) assuming Catherine stayed with or moved back with her Father and Mother in 1819.
3) The 1820 Census has 3 children under the age of 10 and that Jacob's wife is over the age of 45. Are these her children (or at least ALL her children?) ..Unlikely. More likely these are grandchildren of Jacob and Barbara, and that the parents are either Catherine and Daniel or another sibling. Knowing Catherine and Daniels children's place of births could help. Do they have a separate 1820 census record that possibly living with Jacob and Barbara?
