11, 11, 1801   Ely, John, Jr., and Rachel Hartley. 
Back then, "Jr." did not necessarily indicate a father-son relationship.  It was used in the sense of "John, the younger," as opposed to "John, the elder," when two John's lived in the same community.

p. 253 (142) JOHN ELY, son of Hugh and Elizabeth (Wilson) Ely, born March 9, 1778; died July 28, 1826; married, November 11, 1801, Rachel Hartley, daughter of Anthony Hartley, of Buckingham. He inherited the farm in Solebury devised to his father, but sold it in 1822 and thereafter lived in Plumstead and Buckingham, Bucks County. They had four children:--

p. 254 31, 1887, and she died February 26, 1890. They had four children, viz:--
  Annie E., born June 8, 1823; married, December 22, 1847, Isaac Saxton, and had one child, Walter G. Saxton.
  Rachel, born June 9, 1825; married Mordecai Carman. She died without issue, in 1873.
  John E., born April 1, 1827; married, first, Lydia S. Powell, and, second, her sister, (???) Powell; had four children.
  Mary A., born February 24, 1830; married Zaccheus H. Powell, a Minister of the Society of Friends, and had four children.
  Joseph S., died at the age of five years.

3.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service: Ancestral File.  The LDS AF has one John ELY as the son of both Hugh & Elizabeth (BLACKFAN) ELY and Hugh & Elizabeth (WILSON) ELY.  It also has this same John ELY as the husband of both Hannah AUSTIN and Rachel HARTLEY.  Elizabeth BLACKFAN is too old to be the mother of the John ELY born 1778 and the John ELY born in 1778 is too young to have children born in the 1770s/80s, so these must be two different John ELYs, the older one married to Hannah AUSTIN and the younger one married to Rachel HARTLEY (and so I later find see next source):
Hugh ELY (1715-1791) = Elizabeth BLACKFAN (1718-1796)
John ELY (bef. 1760-?) = Hannah AUSTIN (bef. 1760-?)
  Hugh ELY (1741-1805) = Elizabeth WILSON (1739-1821)
John ELY (1778-1826) = Rachel HARTLEY (1773-?)
