They are mother and son; Daniel’s father Alexander died several years earlier. Daniel’s brother John appears on the same page, and brother Jesse appears on the previous page; neither has any numbers next to his name. There is some question as to what the numbers in the columns refer to; Caswell County has just been formed and it may be a survey of acreage of the residents, and number of horses or cattle. It seems unlikely that the second column refers to number of white polls as some of the numbers are very large.
