These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = George (b. 1794/5)
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Polly (b. 1794/5)
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
As expected, the newlyweds have no children.  Living next door to George's sister, Barbara (CHRISMAN) BOBBITT, and three doors down from George's father.
