1800-1810: Federal Census lost for VA for these years.
1820 (all spelled More and all in unknown Township. Film is alphabetical)
Isaac Males:
1 age over 45 [born before 1775]
3 age 16-26
1 age 16-18
1 age 10-15
1 age 1-9
Females:
1 age over 45
3 age 1-10
Slaves:
3 age 1-14
This is no doubt Isaac Moore and Sarah Starr, who left Grayson for Madison, IN by 1840.
Charles 2 males to 10
1 male 10-15
1 male 26-45 [born 1775-1794]
1 female 26-45
1 female 45+
 Appears to be son of Peter and Jane Moore, about whom little is known.
Nimrod Males:
1 age 26-45 [born 1775-1794] Nimrod
5 age 16-26 [Benjamin, Daniel, Thomas, Reuben and Riley]
1 age 10-16 [Isaac]
1 age 1-10 [Nimrod]
Females:
1 age over 45 [Polly]
2 age 10-16 [Margaret and Elizabeth]
1 age 1-10 [Mary]
Slaves:
6 age 1-14
Nimrod and Polly. I believe all their children are accounted for here. At this point, none of them had married yet.
Enoch 1 male 16-26
1 female 16-26
 No doubt Enoch Moore and Rhoda HANKS who married in 1819. Is he a son of Isaac??
Geo. 3 males to 10 [Anderson, Edward and ???]
1 male 10-15 [???]
1 male 26-45 [George]
3 females to 10 [Jane, Juliana & Nancy]
1 female 26-45 [Nancy Ann HANKS]
 George Moore and Nancy Ann HANKS. Is George son of Edward from Surry, NC?
James 4 males to 10
1 male 26-45
1 female to 10
1 female 16-26
 James Moore and Lydia HANKS?
Wm. 1 male to 10
1 male 10-51
1 male 26-45
1 female 26-45
Who is this??
Isaac 1 male to 10 [Lewis]
2 males 10-15 [Isaac and Amos]
1 male 26-44 [born 1776-1794] Isaac
1 female 10-15 [Nancy]
1 female 26-44 [Sarah CARRICO]
 Isaac Moore and Sarah CARRICO. This accounts for all known children of Isaac and Sarah.
1830 (All spelled Moore, unknown Township, alphabetical) - Here I've attempted to arrange them by who's family they are.
Nimrod 1 male 50-59 [Nimrod age 54]
2 males 20-29 [Riley and Isaac or Riley and Nimrod]
1 female 50-59 [Polly age 52]
1 female 15-19 [Mary]
Son Benjamin (age 33), who married Susannah Barbour has yet to be found in the census. Son Riley marries Elizabeth BOYLES in 1832. It is believed Nimrod had a son Isaac in 1804 but the source is the sometimes errant Family Data Collection. Very little is known about Isaac. Son Nimrod married Jane VAUGHAN 30 Oct 1830...presumedly after this census entry.
Daniel, son of Nimrod 1 male 30-40 [Daniel age 31]
1 male under 5 [Andrew Hampton age 1]
2 females 20-30 [Patsy and ????]
2 females 5-9
2 females under 5
Nimrod > Daniel and wife Martha "Patsy" Hampton, who were married 29 Dec 1822.  Daughters Mary and Polly were born about 1825 so it is unclear where they are in this group...leaving 3 unidentified folks in the household.
Thomas 1 male 20-30
1 male under 5
1 female 20-30
1 female 5-9
1 female under 5
One of these ought to be son of Nimrod with wife Huldah CARRICO, but they are not known to have any children before this year. The other may be son of Isaac Moore and Sarah STARR, with wife Jane BABBITT. The other is unknown.
Thomas 1 male 20-30
1 male under 5
1 female 20-30
1 female 10-14
1 female under 5
Thomas 1 male 20-30
2 males under 5
1 female 20-30
1 female 10-14
2 females under 5
Rubin, son of Nimrod 1 male 20-30 [Reuben age 28]
1 female 30-40 [Eleanor age 34]
1 female 5-9 [Mary Ann age 7]
1 female under 5 [Martha and Sally Ann]
Nimrod > Reuben, and wife Eleanor CARSON
Nimrod's known daughters were:
1. Margaret, married Patrick Fountain ROBERTS 13 Oct 1823. They are in Grayson this year.
2. Elizabeth, married Daniel ATKINS Jun 1824. Daniel Atkins is not found as head of household so possibly they are in the home of a Moore or Atkins sibling.
3. Mary, who married Thomas Randolph PHILLIPS 1834, is shown above in the home of her parents.
These entries cover every known child of Nimrod and Polly with a fair degree of certainty, except for Benjamin and Thomas.   
    
Isaac  1 male 50-59 [Isaac age 51]
1 male 20-29 [Isaac age 26 and ???]
1 male 15-19 [Lewis]
1 female 50-59 [Sarah age 51]
Isaac Moore and Sarah CARRICO. Son Isaac married Euphamy JONES 19 Aug 1830, presumably after this entry. Son Lewis married Delilah BOYLES in 1833]...the other male 20-29 is unknown.
Amos, son of Isaac  1 male 20-30 [Amos age 25]
1 male under 5 [Isaac age 1]
1 female 20-30 [Rebecca Ann age 23]
Isaac > Amos, who married Rebecca Ann WALK 1 Jan 1828.  
Enoch...son of Isaac??  1 male 20-30 [Enoch]
1 female 20-30 [Rhoda]
This is assumed to be Enoch Moore who married Rhoda HANKS 4 Mar 1819. Nothing is known of their life after marriage. It seems they both died young and had no children.
Isaac had one known daughter; Nancy, who married Lewis Bledsoe AUSTIN. They are in Grayson under Bledsoe AUSTIN.
These entries cover the known children of Isaac Moore and Sally Carrico with a high degree of certainty. It has yet to be determined, though, if Enoch is one of their children.     
    
Peter  1 male 60-69
1 famale 60-69
This is likely Peter and Martha Moore, who came from Sullivan TN to Grayson about 1800. The line of this family is better known in Pulaski County. Very little is known of them. Their known children are Ammon, Peter Jr (m. Rebecca BREEDING) and Charles (m. Catherine).  
Charles, son of Peter  1 male 30-39 [Charles age 34]
2 males 10-14 [Amon and James]
1 female 30-40 [Catherine]
Peter > Charles, with wife Catherine  
Peter son of Peter may be in Wythe Co. this year and Ammon has yet to be found.
      
Isaac 1 male 60-69 [Isaac age 66]
2 males 20-29 [William age 22 and ???]
1 male 10-14 [Isaac age 14]
1 female 50-59 [Sarah age 55]
2 female 15-19 [Nancy age 19 and Sarah age 17]
1 female 10-14 [???]
Isaac Moore and Sarah STARR. They left Grayson by 1840 and are buried at Prewett Cemetery in Madison Co. IN. Son William married Anne BABBITT in 1831.
John, son of Isaac 1 male 30-40 [John age 33]
1 male under 5 [Thomas age 1]
1 female 30-40 [Rebecca age 30]
1 female under 5 [???]
Isaac > John, who married Rebecca FROST 1826. Thomas is their only known child born before 1830: the female under 5 here is unknown.
Thomas, son of Isaac. See above, under Isaac Moore and Sarah CARRICO Isaac > Thomas, who married Jane BABBITT in 1825.
Daniel, son of Isaac 1 male 20-29
1 female 20-29 
Isaac > Daniel, who married Deborah "Patsy" Hampton.

The known daughters of this Isaac and Sarah were:   
1. Beulah, who married William BABBITT, who are in their own household this year.
2. Lydia, who married Stephen MALLORY, also in their own household this year.
3. Nancy, above, m. Solomon WISE about 1831
4. Sarah, above, m. John FRAZIER in 1832
These entries account for all known children of Isaac Moore and Sarah STARR...and it appears that there was another unknown daughter born between 1816-1820.

    
George 1 male 50-59
1 male 20-29 [Anderson age 20?]
1 male 15-19 [Edwin F. age 18?]
3 males 10-14 [Edward Mason age 12, William F. age 10, and ???]
1 male 5-9 [George W. age 8]
1 male under 5 [Goodson age 1]
1 female 30-39
1 female 20-29 [son Anderson's wife Lethy FULKS?]
1 female 15-19 [Jane age 17]
1 female 10-14 [Nancy age 13]

George Moore and Nancy Ann HANKS. In 1820, 1830 and 1840 there is just one George Moore in Grayson but both this year and 1840 he's shown as age 50-59 (born 1771-1780 or 1781-1790). Based on his age of 26-45 in 1820, 1880 is the only birth year that would make sense in all of them.

Did George and Nancy Ann really have both a son named Edwin and a son Edward?

If my guessing on who's who is correct, this dwelling accounts for all known living children of George and Nancy at the time with one additional unknown family member - a male born 1816-1820.

   
James 1 male 30-40
1 male 15-19
1 male 10-14
2 males 5-9
1 male under 5
1 male 30-39
1 male 10-14
1 male under 5 
As the only James Moore in Grayson, this is presumed to be James Moore and Lydia Hanks. The only known child of this couple is Isaac, who was well known and died in Hood Co., TX. The History of TX 1896 states James and Lydia had 8 children, 7 of whom lived to adulthood and 3 of which were living as of 1896. According to the same, James and Lydia moved to the Cherokee Purchase in GA, 1843. James & Lydia's marriage does not appear in Grayson/Carroll marriages 1793-1852. It also states James is son of William of Surry, NC.
