The 1855 Wisconsin Census has even less information listing only 3 males, and 4 females. Typically this is an aggregate listing including both husband, wife, children, and others (such as farm hands) in the household.

Although Henry died in 1853, the Root family is listed in the 1855 Census as the household of
"H Root" (there were only 2 sons, so the 3rd male is assumed to be a farm hand).
