Notes:  Lazarus and Jesse of Dobbs County are listed together as are all the Pitt County Gatlins except for Edward.  Given the presence of Stephen and Levi, I would hazard to guess that this Elizabeth is Elizabeth Johnson Gatlin, widow of the Edward who died in 1781.  This means that the Elizabeth Gatlen listed in Craven County was, most likely, Elizabeth Reel Gatlin, widow of the Edward who died in 1763.  There is a man named John listed just above her on the census who could be another John Gatlin, though the last name is difficult to judge.  His household has 1 free white male of or over 16, 3 under sixteen and 2 free white females.
