The 1820 Census includes "Nancy Stephens" as a head of household with a colored female under the age of 14 included in the household.  Nothing else is known about the young colored female.  Interestingly enough, the will mentions 4 daughters, yet there are only the 3 young females and the 1 young colored female in the 1820 Census.  Did a daughter die or is the young colored female one of the "daughters" mentioned in the will?
