It's a leap to call Corvin Corbin, but if this isn't our subject, I don't know where he is.

The girl was not with them in 1800, so she doesn't appear to be a daughter.

2 persons engaged in agriculture
*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 girl was not with them in 1810, so she doesn't appear to be a daughter.
