Opinions please. The following 1810 Burke and Wilkes County, NC Census for Isaac MARTIN raises a question on my mind. It might be a little crazy but I'm thinking it.

Compare these two census, I THINK this is the same Isaac MARTIN living in both Morgantown and Wilkesborough – both have households of 3 – it looks like Isaac a son and maybe dau were in Burke, and his wife, a son and daughter were in Wilkes with slaves. As a Rev War vet he could claim half his land in one place – half in another – or for that matter any number of places. MAYBE he actually lived in Wilkes but had business connections in Burke and stayed in both places. He has no slaves in Burke, but there are 2 in Wilkes in a household headed by a woman.
