Our subject is too young (just 13) to be enumerated as head-of-household.  The elder Peter is presumably our subject's father, and his household includes four males under age 16.

3.  1800 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):  there was no 1800 Federal Census of Ohio (it was not yet a state), and the 1800 Census of Kentucky was destroyed, but tax lists are substituted where available.  Listed below are all the STIFFLER/STIFLERs indexed on this CD.

1The pages had three sets of numbers; they were indexed by this set.
2Peter Sr was mis-indexed as being on p. 456.
It's a near certainty that the George and David STIFFLER in Bedford Co., PA, in 1800, are the George and David STIFFLER in Muskingum [now Tuscarawas] Co., OH, in 1807/8, where they also appear in the 1810 census (see next source).  Our subject is the Jacob STIFFLER living next door to his father, Peter STIFFLER, Sr.  For our subject, his data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 9 or under 1790-1800 = Jacob C. (b. 1799/1800)
= Son A
1 male 16-25 1774-1784 = Jacob (b. 1776/7) 
1 female 16-25 1774-1784 = Sarah (b. 1776)

4.  1810 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):  In Maryland, there was an Ann STIFLER and a Sarah STIFFLER.  In Tuscarawas Co., Ohio, there was a David STIFFLER and a George STIFFLER.  In Loudon Co., VA, there were two John STIFLERs, Jr. and Sr.  With the Pennsylvania STIFFLER/STIFLER's given below, these constitute all the STIFLER/STIFFLER's in the 1800 U.S. Census, at least all those indexed on this CD.

1. This set of numbers was stamped on every-other page.
2. This set of numbers was penciled on every page; it is the set the pages are indexed by.
3. The line numbers were written on the original pages and are consecutive for the whole of each township.
The data for our subject indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1800-1810 = John (b. 1802)
3 males 10-15 1794-1800 = Jacob (b. 1799/1800)
= Son A
= ?
1 male 26-44 1765-1784 = Jacob (b. 1776/7)
2 females 9 or under 1800-1810 = Daughter A
= Elizabeth (b. 1805)
1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Sarh (b. 1776)

5.  1820 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #4 of 4; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):  these are the only Jacob STIFFLER/STIFLERs in the 1820 U.S. census (I did a page-by-page check of Shenango Twp. just in case he was there and overlooked by the indexer, but he was not found):
1820 PA Beaver Co. Hanover Twp. p. 118 Ln. 2 Jacob Stiffler 000100-10100-0-100
1820 PA Beaver Co. Hanover Twp. p. 119 Ln. 8 Jacob Stifler 211101-21010-0-100
Of the two Jacob STIFFLER/STIFLERs found in Hanover Twp., Beaver Co., PA, one is too young to be our subject and the other is too old.  The younger Jacob is obviously newly married and is probably our subject's son.  If we grant that the older Jacob is tallied in the wrong age-class as often happens in these pre-1850 censuses then the data do "work" for our subject because they indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 9 or under 1810-1820 = Henry (b. 1817)
= Paul (b. 1814)
1 male 10-15 1804-1810 = ?
1 male 16-18 1801-1804 = John (b. 1802)
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Son A
0 males 26-44 1775-1794 = Jacob (b. 1776/7)
1 male 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = -----
2 females 9 or under 1810-1820 = Daughter C
= Daughter B
1 female 10-15 1804-1810 = Elizabeth (b. 1805)
1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Sarah (b. 1776)
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."

5.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find.  There's a Jacob STIFFLER in Beaver Co., PA, and a Jacob STIFLER in Indiana Co., PA, however both are too young to be our subject.  There are no Jacob STIFLER/STIFFLERs in Ohio.

6.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #5-6 of 12; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 OH Jackson Co. Franklin Twp. p. 6B-7A Ln. 30 Jacob Stiffler 000 000 001 - 000 010 001 _______
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 60-69 1770-1780 = Jacob (b. 1776/7) 
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Daughter C
1 female 60-69 1770-1780 = Sarah (b. 1776)
Listed one line below son, Henry STIFFLER, and one line above son, Paul STIFFLER.

7.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #20 of 32):  Franklin Twp., Jackson Co., OH, p. 304A, 1039/1041, enumerated 13 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Jacob Stifler 73 M   Farmer 400 Pa
Sarah     " 72 F       Pa
Mary Ann  " 13 F       Pa
John      " 11 M       Pa
Sarah is too old to be Mary Ann's and John's mother, so presumably they are grandchildren.  Also, either she has shaved a couple of years off her age, or the 1776 birth-year for her is wrong.  Living next to (widowed daughter-in-law?), Mary (__?__) STIFLER (æ 53, b. PA), on one side; and, on the other side, living next to son, Henry STIFFLER (æ 33, b. PA, wife Nancy).

8.  1860 Census Index/Images (online at Genealogy.com):  not found.
