      Two GOUGH men were listed in the 1803 Warren Co., KY Tax Records:
      Samuel and William Gough. Warren Co., KY is where Jonathan GOUGH
      married Mary Ann TAYLOR in 1806 (see below). It is possible that
      William GOUGH, Sr. was the older man living with Jonathan GOUGH's
      family in 1810 Butler Co., KY census, p.194: 00011/10100, and if so,
      William's wife may have died prior to 1810.
