How are these candidates divided (in your viewpoint) into the incipient Second Party System?

Clinton through Crittenden are National Republican. Burr through Benton are Democrat.

Although, actually Otis was still a Federalist, even though the party was completely dead at the National level. Otis, Marshall, and a few other old Federalists never joined another party. Speaking of which, I should add Marshall

Update: Added Madison and Monroe as what-if candidates. 

Madison, Monroe, JQ Adams, Jackson, Van Buren, Harrison, Tyler, Buchanan are all candidates who will become president at some point. In addition, we have the following losing nominees: Crawford, Clay, Calhoun, Webster, White, Mangum, Cass, and Scott. This gives this scenario 8 presidents, and 8 losing nominees. I'm wondering if any other scenario will have such a high number.
