Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1840 U.S. Census Record of Cornelius Feather Household in New Lyme, Ohio

This week's Tuesday Treasure is the 1840 United States Census record of the Cornelius Feather household in New Lyme, Ashtabula County, Ohio:

The Cornelius Feather entry is the third from the bottom:

The extracted information from this record is:

*  Head of household:  Cornelius Feather
*  1 Male, aged 60 to 69 [certainly Cornelius, born in 1777]
*  1 female, aged 0 to 4 [perhaps a granddaughter]
*  1 female, aged 5 to 9 [perhaps a granddaughter]
*  1 female, aged 30 to 39 [perhaps a sister or a niece]
*  1 female, aged 40 to 49 [perhaps an unknown wife, or a sister or a niece]

The source citation for this marriage is:

1840 United States Federal Census, Ashtabula County, Ohio, population schedule, New Lyne township, Page 220, Cornielis Feather household, online database, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication M704, Roll 376.
I don't think that the female aged 40 to 49 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.
