I checked 1850. The Wilsons are still in Springville.
Sheldon Age 50 Farmer, born Conn.
Ursula age 44, born Conn.
George, age 20, born NY
Charles, age 19, born NY
Daughter [Densy/Hensy?] age 16, born NY [the last two letters are definitely "sy" and I'm pretty sure the preceeding letters are "en", but might by "er"]
Ursula, age 4, born PA

Next door there is an Orsin Smith age 28 born CT and his wife Ester, age 25, born VT. [I included this as I though perhaps given that Orsin was born in CT, he might be a relative of Ursula's.

No sign of Justice Smith or his wife. They were in the 60-70 age bracket in the 1840 census, so they may have died by 1850.
