These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1810-1820 = Samuel V (b. 1818)
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Samuel IV (b. 1775/6)
1 female 9 or under 1810-1820 = Harriet (b. 1820)
1 female 10-15 1804-1810 = ?
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Harriet (b. 1797)
1 person engaged in agriculture
*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."
