Here is a candidate for the T. C. Gilbert you found in the 1840 census living next door to your known family members (Azalia Gilbert Beebe and Lorinda Gilbert Thompson):

Vital Records of New Braintree, Massachusetts
Thadeus Cutlar Gilbert [int. Thaddeus]
of Mansfield [int. adds Montgomery Co. New York]
Rebecah Redding [int. Reading]
[rec. between April 1, 1803 and April 1, 1804]
[int. Oct. 17, 1803]

See listed in this book under both bride's name (Redding) and groom's name (Gilbert):


Lorinda and Azalia could have had a brother named after their father. Find-a-Grave lists quite a few Thadeus Gilberts.

Hope Lorinda's death certificate reveals whether Thadeus and Rebecah (or another couple) are Azalia's parents.
