2.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312):  there are no SHOREs in MD or PA indexed on this CD.

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313):
1810 Shore, J. PA Huntingdon Co. Springfield Twp. p. 18
He is the only SHORE in Huntingdon Co., PA.  His father is in the MD census.

4.  Family Quest Archives:  Pennsylvania Federal Census 1820:  Huntingdon, Lehigh, Northampton, and Perry Counties.  Heritage Quest CD M33-104 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1820 PA Huntingdon Co. Springfield Twp. p. 8 John Shore 521110-10010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
5 males 9 or under 1810-1820 = Aaron (b. 1819)
= Joshua (b. 1815)
= Andrew (b. 1813)
= Abraham (b. 1811)
2 males 10-15 1804-1810 = Isaiah (b. 1809)
= John (b. 1807)
= Joseph (b. 1805)
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Ephraim (b. 1802)
1 male 26-44 1775-1794 = John (b. 1778)
1 female 9 or under 1810-1820 = Margaret (b. 1817)
1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Hannah
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
Apparently Esther has married or died.  Two of the boys are tallied in the wrong age class (either that, or the birthyear of Isaiah is wrong), but there is no doubt these are our subjects.  The records have been alphabetized, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possible.

6.  Austin N. Shore (of Woosung, IL), "Record of the John Shore Family of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania":
The Shore family emigrated from Germany to America about the year 1750.

My Great Great Grandfather, John Shore, was born on the ocean while his parents were enroute to America.  They settled in Baltimore County, Maryland, where my Great Grandfather John Shore was born May 9, 1778.  The family all moved to Pennsylvania in the spring of 1791 and settled in what is now Clay Township, Huntingdon County, PA, December 17, 1801.  They lived in Huntingdon until their deaths.  Great Grandfather on April 30, 1848 and Great Grandmother Shore on March 5, 1860.  They are buried in what is known as the Andrew Shore Cemetery in Shore Valley, Huntingdon County, PA.  To this union fifteen children were born.

Some secondary sources have the marriage date of John and Hannah as 17 Dec 1801.  Did the two events really happen on the same day?
