*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.
Is this the other George CORBIN?

.  LDS.  Family Search:  Pedigree Resouce File (online at familysearch.org).
While some files here show George's parents as Peter & Esther (HOLDWAY) CORBIN and his spouse as Sarah JENNINGS, many have recognized John CORBIN IV and Frances FANT as his parents, and some show different wives, namely, Elizabeth WILSON and Sarah (CREWS) MONROE. 

One of these files, which seems to have quite a few sources, including "Marriages of Culpeper Co., VA, 1781-1815," shows there was a George who have married first Elizabeth WILSON (1761-1814) and second Sarah "Sallie" (CREWS) MONROE on 14 Dec 1814, Culpeper Co., VA.  She married first 11 Sep 1794, Lunenburg Co., VA, James MONROE. 

Two George CORBINs are being mixed up here.
