What documentation is there for this person's birth? The profile shows d.o.b. of 1807, in Portage, Ohio, but Enos Wadsworth is enumerated in Tyringham, Massachusetts in the 1810 U.S. Census. Also in that census, the only female child is between 10 and 15.

Wrong answer!!!!!!  See Below   Great catch....looking at the sources on Enos Wadsworth, it was clear that the wife of Asa, the son, whose name was also Electa, had been confused with a potential daughter of Enos.  It has all been corrected.

Thanks. I've been working over that part of my ancestry, and it just didn't match the records I could find.
My best research buddy, and friend.....just sent me this....https://books.google.com/books?id=RVDWAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA453&lpg=PA453&dq=enos+wadsworth&source=bl&ots=SZDKZKsvZe&sig=ACfU3U3mgLBktkK1sowzP1qtGD0LoWoFqw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjw7-PlrtPsAhWHQc0KHRfSCUY4ChDoATAIegQICBAC#v=onepage&q=enos%20wadsworth&f=false

It indicates that while Asa was married with 2 children in 1823, and his father, Enos had two more children.....John and Electa.   So, Electa is the daughter of Enos.
The 1850 census indicates that she was born in Massachusetts, which makes the "story" correct.   She came with her father and brothers to Ohio.
