These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 4 or under 1835-1840 = Jacob (b. 1837/8)
= Albert (b. 1835/6)
2 males 15-19 1820-1825 = ----
male 20-29 1810-1820 = Michael (b. 1812/3)

1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Martha (b. 1839/40)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Lena (b. 1815/6)
2 person employed in manufactures and trades
Michael is tallied in the wrong age class, but there can be little doubt this is our subject's household.  Hard to say who the other adult male is, could be kin or hired help.
