This William's son Joshua Elmer Igou Sr (abt.1760-1833) is living in PA in 1790, and he would be out of his father's house at age 30.

William Igo Sr. (abt.1771-1864) - possible option, but birthplace listed as Pennsylvania on 1860 census. William is also the son of Daniel and Belinda/Melinda/Delinda/Mary, and there is a Delinda Igoe in the census below, in PA. Why she is listed as the head instead of Daniel is unknown. There is an Ancestry tree (unsourced) that lists Daniel's date of death as 1783, which would leave Delinda widowed and head of house.

IgoeDelindaDelinda (Unknown) Igoe (abt.1731-aft.1790)Delinda Igoe 2 23(obscured)1Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, United States"United States Census, 1790," database with images, FamilySearch (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XHKJ-C5J : accessed 30 December 2020), Delinda Igoe, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, United States; citing p. 111, NARA microfilm publication M637, (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 8; FHL microfilm 568,148. Possible mis-spelling of "Belinda" (no profile, listed as mother of William Igo Sr. (abt.1771-1864))? Would explain why William is not listed in the census if he is living at home at age 19.

2 males 16+ could be Lewis (23)/William (19)/Peter (21), although Lewis and Peter could have been old enough to be on their own. Lewis did not receive a land grant in Ross County Ohio until 3/20/1816, so would not have moved there yet.

2 males under 16 could be Daniel (14) & unknown?

3 free white females would be Delinda (59), Eleanor (17) and unknown?

There is one additional Other Person listed, unknown.

This enumerator put fields in different order, listing Enslaved last, and the scan is not readable in the margin
