3.  1830 Census Index and Digital Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #1 of 16; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1825-1830 = Andrew (b. 1829)
1 male 5-9 1820-1825 = Charles (b. 1825)
1 male 15-19 1810-1815 = ?
1 male 30-39 1790-1800 = William
1 female 4 or under 1825-1830 = Martha (b. 1826)
1 female 5-9 1820-1825 = Mary (b. 1823) 
1 female 15-19 1810-1815 = ?
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Rachel (b. 1800) 
The teenagers are too old to be Rachel's children.  It's possible they are William's children from a former marriage, though if so, we would expect to find William in the 1820 census.

Where are Rachel's other children?  They should all still be at home.  Are they deceased?

11.  Information found by Frank Stroup at the Pennsylvania Historical Society in two folders of unpublished notes entitled Helen Gearhart Collection.  These notes were entirely undocumented, so caveat emptor; yet, they contain much valuable information, if true, so are worth consulting. See Archives of the STRAUB-L mailing list (online at RootsWeb.com) and search on "Gearhart."
