3.  1840 Census Index and Digital Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #1 of 22; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1840 PA Northampton [now Carbon] Co. [Upper] Towamensing Twp. pp. 248B-249A Ln. 11 Chas Belford 101 010 000 - 100 010 010 0000010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Alexander (b. 1837)
1 male 10-14 1825-1830 = ?
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Charles (b. ca. 1811)
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Harriet
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Anna (b. ca. 1811)
1 female 50-59 1780-1790 = mother?
1 person navigates canals, lakes, rivers
Anna's parents are both still alive and living together, so the elder woman is probably Charles's mother.  The teenage boy is probably Charles's youngest sibling; either that or Johannes is tallied in the wrong age class.  Listed next to Anna's married sister, Rebecca (STRAUB) BROWN, whose husband's occupation is also given as navigator of inland waters.
