Manchester Township, Wayne, 1820-1850 - Charles and Eliza Price ??

I am researching my g-g-g grandparents Charles and Eliza Price living in Manchester in 1850 (later moved to Pittston and then Scranton, where they died).

Charles was listed in the 1850 census as 28 years old, and my later research indicates he was born in June 1821.

He was born in Pennsylvania.

In 1850 there were only two elder Price males living, Samuel and Stephen, both in their 50s.

Samuel arrived prior to 1820 in Manchester, and had many children as told by the 1820, 30, and 40 census forms.
Stephen arrived later, from New York, but prior to 1830 in Manchester, and also had many children per 1830 and 40 forms.

In 1850, there were a number of young (age 20-30) Price males born in either New York, or Pennsylvania, living with their young wives.

Charles Price is one of the PA born males, younger than George, and older than Paul, all born in Pennsylvania.

I suspect they were the elder unnamed male children of Samuel Price listed in his 1840 census, but I can't verify this.

I suspect the New York born young males were children of Stephen born in the 1820s before he moved to Manchester.

What sort of information might exist that would help me confirm this and identify Samuel Price as Charles Price's father?

How can I identify Eliza Price, his wife? She is listed as born in New York, although some later census forms indicate she was born in Vermont where her parents were born. Her cemetery/death records indicate New York as her birthplace.

Can I find her maiden name on her marriage certificate? Does Wayne have marriage records for Manchester in the 1840s?

Any help or direction would be appreciated, I'm new to genealogical research (a few weeks now).
