      Assuming that the other person in Asa's household is a child of Asa and/or his wife, that child would have consisted of one sons ( which son would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1820 census).

      Assuming that the other persons in Asa's household are children of Asa and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of three sons (which sons would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1820 census) and one daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census).
