That means John and Nancy
They do not have any slaves.
Margaret and John Poorman are not born yet.
Nancy's older girl - Martha Bancroft is not listed here. She would be 14 years old. She is also the one living w/ another family in 1850. No names given in this census - look at the same family to see if they have a young female living with them here as well.
Elizabeth [Betsy] and unnamed daughter should be in the 10 - 15 years olds.
