Elizabeth Burnett (or is it Bennett?) on the 1820 Middlesex Co., VA Census

Posted: 1555614464000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Burnett, Bennett
The Ancestry census index for Middlesex Co., VA for 1820 shows Elizabeth "Bennett" (age 45 or older), but the actual handwritten census sheet sure looks like Elizabeth "Burnett." Does anyone know which is correct? If "Burnett" is correct, does anyone know who she was? Thanks.

Note: If "Bennett" is actually correct after all, she was probably the wife of Smith Bennett whose maiden name was Elizabeth Baker Stiff....though she would have been about the age of 42 in 1820 and not the age of 45 or older (but I have little faith in "census ages").
