*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.
The match here isn't great, but no other David CORBIN in 1820 comes any closer, and he is in Kanawha County.  Listed six lines from an elderly William CORBIN, who is presumably David's father.

.  Anon.  1883.  The History of Henry and St. Clair Counties, Missouri.  National Historical Co., St. Joseph, MO (bios online at the Henry County MOGenWeb site):  On p. 1159:
JAMES FLETCHER CORBIN, one of the earliest settlers of St. Clair County, was born December 31, 1831.  His father, David Corbin, a Virginian by birth, born in 1790, was married in 1813, to Miss Annie Erwin, originally of Kentucky. Their family consisted of eleven children, of whom James was the youngest.  In 1839 the senior Corbin removed with his family to St. Clair County, Missouri, they being among the pioneers here.  In the fall following his arrival (1839), he erected his first dwelling of round logs, it being just fourteen feet square, and in this house of one room, fifteen persons ate and slept for seven months.  The next spring an addition was placed upon it, which when completed, measured 20x18 feet.  During this time the meat used by them was procured with the rifle.  Mr. Corbin and his sons built the first frame house erected in Osceola.  This structure was constructed of whipsawed lumber, sawed by them, and after being finished it was occupied by a Frenchman as a tailor shop.  This was located near the present site of the Upper Osceola Mill...
