These data indicate:

1 male 9 or under 1810-1820 = Son?
1 male 10-15 1804-1810 = ?
1 male 16-18 1801-1804 = ?
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = William (b. 1792/3)
1 male 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Father-in-law?

1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Mother-in-law?
3 persons 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."
The two teenage males are too old to be our subject's children.

Name Deathdate Age at Death Result
WM. STRUPE 17 Apr 1871 24d 04m 78y 24 Nov 1792

(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)
Based on an age of 51 in the 1850 census, an age at death of 62 yrs makes her about six years too old; on the other hand, an age of 52 makes her about four years too young.
