2.  1810 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Valentine not found.  There is a "Christn Sellander" (æ 45+) in Middleton, Cumberland Co., PA (p. 81/156).  Some secondary sources show him as Valentine's father.

3.  1820 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #10 of 22; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1820 PA Cumberland Co. East Pennsboro Twp. Roll M33_102 p. 66 Ln. 8 Valentine Slanders 210110-11011-0-100
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 9 or under 1810-1820 = Samuel (b. 1817/8)
= Son 
1 male 10-15 1804-1810 = William (b. 1804-7)
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = ?
1 male 26-44 1775-1794 = Valentine
1 female 9 or under 1810-1820 = Melinda (b. 1818)
1 female 10-15 1804-1810 = Ellen (b. 1806)
1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Rachel
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = mother? mother-in-law?
1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a "new," more precise age class.
