    4 households listed:

    E.L. Skinner: 2 males under 5 (Samuel & Asa), 3 males ages 5-9 (Joseph, James & George), 1 male ages 10-15 (J.E.), 1 male ages 20-30 (?), 1 male ages 40-50 (E.L), 1 female ages 10-15 (Sarepeta), 1 female ages 15-20 (?), 1 female 30-40 (Mary E. Haley).

    Lewis Bray: 1 male ages 40-50 (Lewis), 1 female ages 40-50 (Catherine Skinner).

    Asa W. Skinner (misspelled as Acy W. Skiner): 1 male under 5 (Asa Jr.), 1 male ages 5-9 (John), 2 males ages 15-19 (Mark and James), 1 male ages 30-39 (self), 2 females ages 5-9 (Margaret and Martha), 2 females ages 10-14 (unnamed daughters), and 1 female ages 30-39 (wife Martha Jane).

    Joseph Skinner: 1 male ages 5-10 (likely nephew Ezekiel David Haley), 1 male ages 30-40 (Joseph), 1 female ages 40-50 (Mary Palmer, wrong age bracket), 1 female ages 70-80 (likely sister Lucinda, widow, wrong age bracket). Given that Lucinda and David are recorded as living with Joseph and Mary for the 1860 census, and Lucinda for the 1870 census, and that I can't find any record of Alexander Haley after 1830, I believe Lucinda was a widow by 1840 and that she and her son Ezekiel are the additional 2 people in Joseph's household.

    Brother John Skinner is listed on the next page of entries (page 5), line 10.
