2.  1820 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #3 of 6; official enumeration date 7 Aug 1820; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1820 NY Cattaraugus Co. ["Old"] Ischua [now Franklinville] Roll M33_66 p. 18 Ln. 3 Jonathan H Lyon 000100-00100
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Jonathan (b. 1796)
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Harriet (b. 1800)
*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.

3.  1830 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #7 of 12; official enumeration date 1 Jun 1830; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1830 NY Cattaraugus Co. Franklinville Roll M19-85 p. 166 Ln. 20 Jonathan H Lyon 220 121 - 000 101
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 4 or under 1825-1830 = Son C
= Son B
2 males 5-9 1820-1825 = Son A
= Reuben (b. 1822)
1 male 15-19 1810-1815 = hired help? kin?
2 males 20-29 1800-1810 = hired help? kin?
= hired help? kin?
1 male 30-39 1790-1800 = Jonathan (b. 1796)
1 female 15-19 1810-1815 = hired help? kin?
1 female 30-39 1790-1800 = Harriet (b. 1800) 
If either Jonathan's and/or Harriet's parents died, we might expect this sudden influx of young adults/teens into their household.
