1 male 9 or under 1810-1820 = Allison (b. 1817)
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = ?

1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Delia (b. 1794/5)
2 person engaged in manufacture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
The male in his 20's is too old to be their child.

Allison is in the wrong age class, but it must be him because he survived to marry.  The twins, Benjamin and Joseph, were born after 1 Jun 1830, so they were not enumerated in 1830.
