Thanks to you knowing where Ursula went, I checked the 1840 census for Springville, Susquehanna PA and found Sheldon and his family. Guess who's living 11 houses away on the same page? Justus Smith and his wife both age 60-70 and what are probably a couple of adult sons. It could be coincidence I suppose, but I think it's pretty strong evidence that Justus/Justice/Justis/Jehial etc. is the father of your Ursula. What do you think?
p.s. I've got no connection with any Smiths. Just enjoy a good genealogical puzzle.
