Here is the actual census data I found enumerating Julia A. MOYER and her family in DeKalb Co, IL:

US Federal Census/South Grove, DeKalb Co, IL
26 Jul 1870

Jacob FETTERLY, 63, b.NY
-Margaret, 63, b.NY
-Malinda MOYER, 6?, b.IL
Nicholas FETTERLY, 30, b.NY
-Mary Ann, 29, b.Canada
-Alice M. 2, b.IL
-Hannah, 3/12, b.IL
-Julia A. MOYER, 10, b.IL
Harvey FETTERLY, 23, b.NY
-Edith, 19, b.IL
-Elizabeth, 11/12, b.IL

It appears to me that all of these people are living in the same dwelling. A couple of lots away is Julia's father, living with a new wife:

John J. MOYER, 33, b.NY
-Minerva, 33, b.OH (*maiden name is MASON)
-Jacob J., 14, b.NY
-Rosetta A., 12, b.IL
-Ellen J., 8, b.IL
-Emitt (sp?) W., 2, b.IL
-Charles M., 6/12, b.IL

US Federal Census/South Grove, DeKalb Co, IL
29 Aug 1860

Jacob FETTERLY, 55, b.NY
-Margaret, 54, b.NY
-Margaret, 20, b.NY
-John, 16, b.NY
-Harvey, 14, b.NY

and living close by is:

John J. MOYER, 24, b.NY
-Malinda, 24, b.NY (*is maiden name FETTERLY?)
-Jacob, 5, b.NY
-Rosetta, 3, b.NY
-Margaret, 6/12, b.IL (* is this Julia?)
-Warren MASON, 30, b.IL
