Hereinafter cited as King Township Minutes The next census was on 7 March 1810, which recorded 1 adult male, 1 adult female, 2 male children, and 2 female children. The census of 4 March 1811 showed the same number of occupants, while the census of 2 March 1812 noted the addition of another male child. On 2 March 1813, the household added 1 male child over the age of 16, and included 3 male children and 3 female children under 16. There were 3 male children under 16, and 2 female children under 16 on 15 March 1814.
The 1815 census enumeration is illegible. On 20 March 1816, 1 male child over age 16 is recorded, while 4 younger male children and 2 younger female children were living in the household. On 4 March 1817, the eldest male child is no longer residing in the house, and no change was noted in the household on 3 January 1818. However by 9 January 1819, there is a male child over age 16 living in the house again, while the number of younger children remains unchanged.
On 5 January 1820, one male child over age 16 is living in the household, along with 3 younger male children and 3 younger female children. Exactly one year later, there are now 2 male children over age 16, 3 younger male and 3 younger female children. The next enumeration occurred on 8 April 1822, at which time in addition to the parents there are 2 males over age 16, 1 female over age 16, 3 males under 16, and 2 females under 16.
The last census showing Caleb McWilliams on 1 March 1823 suggests that one of the male children over age 16 had moved on, leaving 1 male over age 16, 1 female over age 16, 3 males under 16, and 2 females under 16.
