*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.

Hannah appears to be fibbing about her age because, based on other records, she should be about 74 years old.  In the 1850 census, Philip M. CORBIN was long married and living with his wife, Lucy, so there is no way he could be this unmarried man still living with our subject.  Listed next to married son, Lewis CORBIN.

8.  1860 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  our subjects are deceased.  There is a John M. CORBIN (æ 49, b. VA) living in Rappahannock Co., VA (p. 167), with the SISKEL family; surely this is John Mallory CORBIN.  Philip M. CORBIN and his wife, Lucy, are also living in Rappahannock Co., VA (q.v.).

9.  1870 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Mallory CORBIN (æ 58, b. VA; farm laborer) is living in Piedmont Twp., Rappahannock Co., VA (p. 144B), with his widowed brother-in-law, Reuben SIMMS.

.  Kenneth Corbin.  2009.  The Leaves of the Corbin Tree.  Vol. 1 of 2.  Self-published, Louisville, KY:
The author did not routinely put all surnames in all-caps, so I have converted them to make for easier scanning for names.
p. 26 90.  Joseph William7 CORBIN (John6, John5...), was born in 1766 at Culpeper Co., VA.  He married Hannah MENEFEE, daughter of Henry MENEFEE and Hannah, on 10 Aug 1799 at Culpeper Co., VA...  He died before 14 Feb 1859 at Rappanhannock Co., VA...  He left a will...

The eight known children of Joseph William8 CORBIN and Hannah MENEFEE were as follows:
330.   i.   Henry8 CORBIN.
+ 331.   ii.   Frances CORBIN was born on 2 Jan 1802 at Culpeper Co., VA. She married Isaiah GAUNT, son of Andrew GAUNT and Catherine CORBIN, on 20 May 1831 at Culpeper Co., VA.
+ 332.   iii.   John Menefee CORBIN was born between 1809 and 1817 at VA...
+ 333.   iv.   Philip Malory CORBIN was born circa 1815 at VA...
+ 334.   v.   Lewis CORBIN was born on 10 Apr 1815 at VA...
+ 335.   vi.   Mary CORBIN was born circa 1824 at VA.  She married Reuben SIMMS Sr. in Feb 1831 at Culpeper Co., VA.
+ 336.   vii.   William Henry CORBIN was born circa 1828 at KY.  He married Sarah on 25 Sep 1864 at Macon Co., MO.
  337.   viii.   S. CORBIN was born circa 1858 at OH...  She appeared on the census 1880 at Morrow, Macon Co., MO; recorded on Page #360D.

The author has mixed up the middle names of John and Philip. 
Mary can't have been born in 1824 if she married in 1831.
If William Henry was born in KY, then I don't see how he can be a son of our subjects, who don't appear to have ever left Virginia.
  The S. CORBIN (æ 22, b. OH) on p. 360D is Simeon CORBIN, a male, and he's the son of Lewis CORBIN, so he's our subject's grandchild.  In any case, it is biologically impossible for Hannah to have birthed a child in the 1850s when she was in her 60s!  Also, it's Narrows Twp., not Morrow Twp.
