Sources:

1.  Liahona Research (Orem, UT), compilers.  1996.  Marriage Index:  Ohio, 1789-1850 (Broderbund CD-400):
Ely, Asler Gearhart, Rebecca Sep 18, 1838 Knox Co.

2a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1840 (Broderbund CD-316):
1840 Ely, John F. OH Knox Co. Franklin Twp. p. 394
It is a total mystery to me how this record became indexed as "John."  As bad as this census-taker's handwriting is, it is still definitely, if not clearly, "Asher."

2b.  Family Quest Archives:  Ohio Federal Census 1840:  Knox County.  Heritage Quest CD M704-406 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 OH Knox Co. Franklin Twp. p. 393B Asher F Ely 100 110 - 000 010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Clinton (b. 1838/9)
1 male 15-19 1820-1825 = ?
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Asher (b. 1813/4)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Rebecca (b. 1820)
The teenager is too old to be their son.  Living two doors down from Rebecca's brother, Whitfield GEARHEART.

3.  Family Quest Archives:  Ohio Federal Census 1850: Knox County.  Heritage Quest CD M432-700:  Hilliar Twp., Knox Co., OH, p. 108B, 1499/1514, enumerated 30 Sep 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Rebecca " 29 F     "
Clinton " 11 M     O
Columbus "  9 M     "
L. Ellen "  7 F     "

It really does look like a "g," but surely it is meant to be Ely.  Living two doors down from Rebecca's brother, Ira GEARHEART.
