These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 4 or under 1835-1840 = Son A (b. 1837-40)
= William P. (b. 1837/8)
1 male 15-19 1820-1825 = ?
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Napoleon (b. 1814/5)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Emeline
1 person employed in agriculture
The teenage male is too old to be Napoleon's son.

Napoleon B  "  1 M         "
Our widow is living with her parents.  Napoleon's age has to be wrong because his father died in 1851, and the 1870 census confirms it.

William H. CORBIN is our subject's nephew, son of Napoleon's brother, Samuel Peter CORBIN

Isabella Henderson 17 F       2700 Georgia
Henry L. CORBIN is our subject's brother, and the Cicero CORBIN living with him appears to be our subject's orphaned son.  A researcher asserts that Isabella is Cicero's sister and that her surname here is enumerator error.  This may be so, but it may not, and the fact that I can't find Isabella in the 1850 census does not strengthen the case.

6.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #139 of 265):  Macon P.O., Subdivision No. 8, Bibb Co., GA, Roll 593_136, p. 682A, PN 139, 1238/1178, enumerated 22 Jul 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤()
