Husband:  Ezra GALUSHA
Birth:  1769/70, Canada
Death:  28 Feb 1853
Father:  Jacob GALUSHA
Mother:  Desire ANDRUS
Marriage:  1799
Wife:  Mabel BARNEY
Birth:  1774-84, Williston, Chittenden Co., VT
Death:  1844, Du Page Co., IL
Father:  Capt. Thomas BARNEY
Mother:  Mabel CHITTENDEN
Children born in Chittenden Co., VT:
1.  Mabel Elizabeth GALUSHA, b. 1801, VT 
2.  Jacob A. GALUSHA, b. 1801/2, VT 
3.  Charles GALUSHA, b. 1811/2, NY
4.  Thomas B. GALUSHA, b. 1820/1, VT 

The 1850 Census has Mabel, Jacob, and Thomas born in VT, but Charles born in NY.  I suspect "NY" is census-taker error, but if Charles really was born in NY, then he may not be Ezra's son.  On the other hand, Chittenden Co. is just across the Hudson River from New York state, so he could easily have been born there when his mother was on a visit.

1800 VT Galusha, Ezra Chittenden Co. Burlington 00010-0011000
These data should read:
which indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 26-44 1755-1774 = Ezra (b. 1769/70)
1 female 16-25 1774-1784 = Mabel
1 female 26-44 1755-1774 = ?
The record shows a couple with no small children, which is consistent with them being newlyweds.  Ezra is not old enough to have fathered the younger girl, so despite his being 30 yrs of age, the younger woman must be his bride. There are any number of scenarios to explain the second woman, though it is not likely Mabel's mother, for both her parents are alive.  Both of Ezra's biological parents have passed away, but the older woman could conceivably be his step-mother.  But as I said, many scenarios could fit the data.  Numerical data from later censuses should clarify which woman is Mabel.  Also in Chittenden Co.: Ezra's brother, Daniel GALUSHA
