Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1830 U.S. Census Record of Cornelius Feather Household in Salem, Mercer County, Pennsylvania

This week's Tuesday Treasure is the 1830 United States Census record of the Cornelius Feather household in Salem, Mercer County, Pennsylvania:

The Cornelius Feather entry is the fourth from the bottom:

The extracted information from this record is:

*  Head of household:  Cornelius Feather

*  1 Male, aged 20-29: [certainly son George, born 1808]*  1 Male, aged 50 to 59 [certainly Cornelius, born in 1777]
*  1 female, aged 10 to 14 [certainly daughter Mary Ann, born 1815]
*  1 female, aged 20 to 29 [perhaps daughter Sarah, born 1804 but married, or some other female]
*  1 female, aged 30 to 39 [perhaps an unknown wife, or a sister or a niece]

The source citation for this marriage is:

"1830 United States Federal Census," Population Schedule, Mercer County, Pennsylvania, Salem township; Page 206, Cornelius Feather household, online database and digital image, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M19, Roll 149.

I don't think that the female aged 30 to 39 in the 1840 census is Cornelius' first wife or the mother of Sarah Feather.

Cornelius Feather (1777-1853) is my 4th great-grandfather.  He married --?-- --?-- (about 1785-before 1830) before 1804 when they had my 3rd great-grandmother, Sarah Feather (1804-1848) who married Henry Carringer before 1825.  Cornelius married (2) Mary --?-- (1792-1855) in about 1850.
