So According to Elisha Freeman’s entry in the genealogy Freeman Families in New England, he was listed as the head of a household in the 1790 census in Norwich, Vermont. I was able to obtain the original record on ancestry.com.
Elisha Freeman, one male age 16 or greater, four males under 16, and four females for a total of nine individuals
