Did Asenath Goodenough Conant marry a Van Riper?

Asenath Goodenough-223 married Abel Conant who died in 1840 leaving her with several young children.  The youngest Conant child was Lorenzo Franklin Conant who went by the name Frank.  I found an 1870 census from Illinois that lists an Aseneth Van Riper living in the household with a L. F. Conant.
The age is approximately correct.  I have not found any sources for her in familysearch under either  married name.  (There is another Aseneth Goodenough who married a Moore and a Brant listed in FAG.  Do not confuse these two women)  Should I assume this rare name is enough
to add it to the profile or just leave it as research notes?  Opinions?
Edit:  tried a third time to enter my question.  I think it is a problem
with my computer and familysearch.org, which I still have not been able to correct . ( It will not recognize second people listed in census lists.  I am told that my server cannot connect to that network)

Added the link for you. Please check that it is the right one.
The question does appear on her profile and it connects to the question.  Thank you.  I'm tied up following down a lot of this family and didn't get back to you until now.

A pile of bricks instead of a hurdle thanks to you and Wayne Morgan.  I am
adding more information to the profiles and that will also allow me to be sure I was  correctly assuming  that L. F. Conant is her son and will fill
out his profile with wife and several children.
