Also living in the household in 1850 were a female, America Recard, age 21 born Ky and Charles Wiltshire, age 24, a cooper born in Ohio. Relationship unknown.
Next door to Carlton lived Jared Belt, age 44, also born in Ohio - no doubt a brother to Carlton. Wife Sarah, and children George, John, Carlton, Sarah A., and Samuel. This must be a 2nd marriage of Jared as there is a marriage record: Jared Belt to Sarah Dawson 25 Jun 1842, Vigo Co IN. Children Sarah A. & Samuel ages 4 and 2 are much younger than the others. J. Belt was in the 1840 census in Vigo Co IN, at that time there were 2m under 5, 1m 5-10, 1m 30-40 [probably Jared], 1f 5-10, and 1f age 20-30.

This family is said to have "gone to California". I found them in Wisconsin in 1860.
