2a.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #15 of 15):  Richland Twp., Wyandot Co., OH, p. 227A, 98/888, enumerated 14 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
David Murry 28 M   Farmer 1200 O
Susannah " 20 F       Pa
Jemima   "  1 F       "
Woodruf Chilson 16 M   Laborer   "
Mary Murry 62 F       NY
David & Susannah were married in Wyandot County (see David MURRAY's family group sheet), so Jemima was certainly born in Ohio, not PA, and so was Woodruff.  Also in Richland Township:  Benjamin T. CHILSON and William A. CHILSON (Benjamin is Woodruff's brother; William may be also). 

2b.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #1 of 15):  Richland Twp., Wyandot Co., OH, p. 220A, 6/_, enumerated 9 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen).  For full record, see Phillip CLINE's family group sheet
Phillip Kline 36 M   Chair Maker   O
[Phillip's wife and children]
Hannah Willard 14 F       O
It's unfortunate we don't find Hannah living with her parents in 1850 because it was our best shot at identifying her parents.  The only other WILLARDs in Wyandot County are John WILLERD (æ 21, b. PA, wife Elizabeth) and Peter WILLERD (æ 32, b. PA, wife Ruth), who are living next door to one another in Salem Township (Image 8 of 18; p. 260B).  It's possible that John and Peter are Hannah's older brothers.

3.  1860 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #9 of 23 mis-indexed "Chitson"):  Dunkirk P.O., Jackson Twp., Hardin Co., OH, p. 411A, PN 101, 678/678, enumerated 19 Jul 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Woodruff Chilson 25 M         O
Hannah 24 F         "
James A  5 M         "
Laura 5/12 F         "
James is Hannah's son from her first marriage.  There are no other CHILSON's in the county.
