1820 NY Otsego Co. Richfield Roll M33_74 p. 166 Ln. 7 Benj. Corbin 000201-01001-0-300
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 19-25* 1794-1801 = Clark (b. 1800)
= Lyman (b. 1797)
1 male 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Benjamin (b. 1763)

3 persons engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a "new," more precise age class.

4.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #19 of 22; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1830 NY Otsego Co. Richfield Roll 102 p. 12 Ln. 14 Benjamin Corvin 000 000 001 - 000 000 010

1 male 60-69 1770-1780 = Benjamin (b. 1763)
1 female 50-59 1780-1790 = Polly (b. 1774)
Benjamin and Polly are tallied in the wrong age classes, but there can be no doubt these are our subjects.  Listed one line above Mason CORVIN.

5.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #19-20 of 20; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 NY Otsego Co. Richfield Roll 327 pp. 95B-96A Ln. 23 Mason Corbin 011 000 100 100  - 000 200 100 100 0300000
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 5-9 1830-1835 = George (b. 1831/2)
1 male 10-14 1825-1830 = Son A
1 male 40-49 1790-1800 = Mason (b. 1793/4)
1 male 70-89 1760-1770 = Benjamin (b. 1763) 
2 females 15-19 1820-1825 = Mary (b. 1823/4)
1 female 40-49 1790-1800 = Anna (b. 1797)
1 female 70-79 1760-1770 = Polly (b. 1774?)
3 persons employed in agriculture
My guess is Polly's age on her tombstone is wrong.
