Young Hess Children Lists

Renee (Taylor) Martin was looking carefully through the pages of an old cyphering book belonging to her father when she found a loose sheet of paper, folded and tucked into the pages. The paper was folded in half and contained a list of children’s names under the names of six different parents. There were no dates, but birth order of the children was indicated. The last names of the people are Hess and Young. The cypher book had been made by Renee's great- great-grandfather George Taylor. She realized that this list probably belonged to George Taylor’s wife, Christina (Dinah) “Tiny” Augsbury Taylor. Tiny Augsbury is descended from the Young family on her mother’s side and has Hess cousins. The beautiful script handwriting may have been written by Tiny or perhaps her mother, Hannah (Young) Augsbury.
A couple of things about the list became apparent.
1/ Hannah, along with her brothers David and William, had remained in New York when her parents moved the rest of the family to Canada in 1813. This list showed the children for her six siblings who had ended up in Canada.
2/ No children born after 1845 are on the list, which would seem to date the list to around that year.

The six parents on this list match up with the names of the six children who accompanied John D Young and his wife Margaret (Countryman) Young to Canada in 1813. And they seem to be listed in order of their birth.
The first page is the front of the folded paper. When the paper is opened up, the list on the left is page 2 and the list on the right is page 3. The three pages and their transcriptions follow:
