Kedar Hawthorn in 1820 census - Conecuh Co., Alabama

There are two entries for "Kedar Hawthorn" in the 1820 Conecuh Co., AL census. If one is the elder Kedar, married (or believed to be married) to Eunice Pierce Wright, the other must be the younger Kedar (1798-1877), who was not yet married to Martha Baggett -- but who were all the other people in the younger Kedar's 1820 census household?

7 males under 21

[His neighbors incl. James and Joseph Oliver, Malachi Warren, Josiah Wright, Hester, Joseph Harville, Walker, Curry]

Kedar Hawthorn [clearly written]

1 male over 21
4 males under 21
1 female over 21
1 female under 21
no slaves
Total inhabitants = 7

[His neighbors include Eli Stroud, Orion Stroud, Wm. Curry, Reuben Peavy?, Wyley Lampkin, Joseph East, Garrett Longmire]

The 1820 census is also viewable in typed & published format on Google Books, as "Alabama Census Returns 1820 & an Abstract of Federal Census of Alabama 1830"

Note that the (typed) book version has the 2nd Kedar indexed as "KENDAR HAWTHORN," which seems to be where some people get that name for their family trees.
