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.

Mary F      " 64 F         "

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.

5b.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #4 of 16):  Floyd & Vista Ridge P.O., Ward No. 6, Carroll Par., LA, Roll M653_409, p. 406, PN 90, 819/784, enumerated 9 Aug 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤

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):¤()

Adeline has obviously remarried.
