Children with Rosanna:
Given Rosanna's age, certainly none with George, even if they were actually married.
Comment:  I'm not certain the marriage dates are anything but guesses, which means I'm not certain who mothered which children, except that Christiana and Martin are surely Christiana's.

*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.
It's disturbing to find this many discrepancies two censuses in a row. Is this really our subject?

Is this household really our subjects?  Do we have a sloppy census-taker?  A mistaken informant?  Bad birthdates?

6.  1850 Census Index/Microfilm (online at GenealogyLibrary.com):  East Finley Twp., Washington Co., PA, p. 544B, 123/123, enumerated 28 Oct 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
George Ely 72 M Farmer 2500 Pa
Martin  " 23 M   "   "
Nancy   " 22 F     "
Rosana  "  3 F     "
Silas   "  1 M     "
George's age, here, is not consistent with the 1810 or 1830 censuses, which show him to be a slightly younger man in his 60s rather than his 70s.  Are we seeing age inflation?  We need to see the 1860 census. Martin ELY is George's son, Nancy his daughter-in-law, and Rosanna and Silas his grandchildren. 

7.  1860 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #14 of 32, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):  East Finley Twp., Washington Co., PA, Roll, p. 386, 326/321, enumerated 29 Jun 1860:

Listed between George's married son, Martin ELY, and George's widowed daughter-in-law, Eleanor (SPROWLES) ELY.
