*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.
This page image was extremely difficult to read; I may not have it right.  It's difficult to tell just who is in the household at this point, but it does look like our subject's parents are living with him.  Listed next to unmarried brother, Matthew LYON, Jr., who is living alone, except for slaves.
