3.  1810 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #5 of 5 list was roughly alphabetized; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1810 NC Lincoln Co. Capt Andrews District Roll 40 p. 477 Ln. 2 Phillip Cloninger 10010-20010-00
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1800-1810 = Michael (b. 1809) 
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Philip (b. 1780/1)
2 females 9 or under 1800-1810 = Barbara (b. 1804/5)
= Ann (b. ca. 1803)
1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Sarah (b. 1780s)
Our subject is the only Philip/Phillip CLONINGER in the entire census.

4.  1820 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #5 of 33 list was roughly alphabetized; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1820 NC Lincoln Co. "East of the South Fork of the Catawba River" Roll M33_83 p. 352 Ln. 5 Phillip Cloninger 010010-02010-0-000
These data indicate:

1 male 10-15 1804-1810 = Michael (b. 1809)
1 male 26-44 1775-1794 = Philip (b. 1780/1)
2 females 10-15 1804-1810 = Barbara (b. 1804/5)
= Ann (b. ca. 1803)
1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Sarah (b. 1780s)
There are only two Phillip/Philip CLONINGERs in the entire census: our subject in NC and another in VA.

5.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #157-158 of 214; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1830 NC Lincoln Co. Roll 122 p. 233 Ln. 25 Philip Cloninger 010 010 100 - 010 010 100 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 5-9 1820-1825 = Grandson Ephraim STROUP (b. 1823/4)
1 male 20-29 1800-1810 = Michael (b. 1809)
1 male 40-49 1780-1790 = Philip (b. 1780/1)
1 female 5-9 1820-1825 = Granddaughter Polly STROUP (b. 1821/2)
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Barbara (b. 1804/5)
1 female 40-49 1780-1790 = Sarah (b. 1780s)
Our subject is the only Philip/Phillip CLONINGER in the entire census.  Neither Michael nor Barbara has married by 1830, so presumably they are the young adults in the household.  Daughter Ann is deceased, and her husband, David STROUP, has remarried.  There are no children in David's household born before his marriage to his second wife, so it seems likely that the two small children here are Ann's. 

6.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #81 of 84; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 NC Lincoln [now Gaston] Co. Roll 364 pp. 140A-140B Ln. 7 Philip Cloninger 000 201 010 - 000 100 010 no slaves 0400000
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 15-19 1820-1825 = Grandson Ephraim STROUP (b. 1823/4)
= ?
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = ?
1 male 50-59 1780-1790 = Phillip (b. 1780/1)
1 female 15-19 1820-1825 = Granddaughter Polly STROUP (b. 1821/2)
1 female 50-59 1780-1790 = Sarah (b. 1780s)
4 persons employed in agriculture
Their son, Michael (b. 1809), married in 1839, and I can't find him as head-of-household in the 1840 census, so I would have taken him to be the male here, except that Michael's wife was born in 1812.  I might have accepted that Michael's wife was tallied in the wrong age class, except that we have a female born 1820-25 (viz., granddaughter Polly) with our subjects in 1830 and 1850, so the female in 1840 has to be Polly.  It's hard to say who the other two males are; they could be kin, hired help, or boarders.

7.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #57 of 145):  Gaston Co., NC, Roll M432_630, p. 419A, 408/408, enumerated 24 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
Phillip Cloniger 69 M   Farmer    
E Stroup   " 26 M        
Nancy      " 21 F        
Mary       "  1 F        
Barbee     " 9/12 F        
"E. Stroup" is Ephraim STROUP, who is the right age to be a son of Phillip's late daughter, Ann (CLONINGER) STROUP.  Listed next to married son, Michael CLONINGER.  In the other direction, listed five households from their married daughter, Barbra (CLONINGER) ROBERSON (æ 45) and her husband, John ROBERSON (æ 45). 

8.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #147 of 182):  Stanley's Creek P.O., Gaston Co., NC, Roll M653_898, p. 74A, PN 147, 1128/1034, enumerated 15 Aug 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Micheal Cloninger 51 M   Farmer 1000 738  
Catharine   " 43 F          
[Michael & Catharine's children]
Phillip     " 80 M          
A blank birthplace in this case means born in Gaston Co., NC (i.e., otherwise, the county of birth was given).  Our subject is the only adult Philip/Phillip CLONINGER in the entire census.
