    In the 1860 census above, Sarah and Adaline are reproted with the sameage, so obviously twins.  Their age of 7 makes their birth about 1853. Their brother Franklin is reproted as age 9, so born about 1851.  Ingraves for members of this famly, we find that Adaline's birth date isreported as the year 1851, 2 years earlier than her census age woulldindicate.  Meanwhile, Franklin, named Benjamin Franklin on his gravememorial, is reported born in 1854, not 1851.
