Thanks for that instructive link!

Nothing conclusive, but I did see this instruction:

It is desirable that the children of the family proper should follow in the order of their ages, as will naturally be the case.

In this case, the purported "father" is listed out of order with his siblings, but just before the grandchildren whom Ancestry inferred are his children.
