Sources:

1.  Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, 17631900:
Bayless, Rees Thompson Matilda Macoupin 05/14/1843 v. 2, p. ? lic. #790

2.  AIS (Accelerated Index System) Census Index (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find in 1830.

3.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #20 of 84; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 IL Macoupin Co. pp. 35B-36A Ln. 30 Rees Bayless 000 011 - 000 010 0100000
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = brother? brother-in-law? boarder?
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Reese (b. 1805/6) 
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = sister? sister-in-law? boarder?
1 person employed in agriculture
The fact that there are no children in the household (and no children over 10 in 1850) and that I find no previous marriage for Reese in the above marriage database suggests that the woman in this household is not his wife, but possibly a sister, sister-in-law, boarder, etc.
