ANDREWS, which is how she came to be Mary ANDREWS on her death certificate.

1 person employed in agriculture
At first glance, William's middle initial does look like "G," but if you check other entries to see how the enumerator wrote the letter, "D," it is possible to read it as D, which it surely should be.

3b.  1840 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  John DARBAUGH (æ 50-59) and his family are living in Paris Twp., Stark Co., OH (q.v.).

James DEFORD would appear to be Harriet's brother.

Mary (KAUFMAN) DOSHBAUGH is the mother of Mary (DOSHBAUGH) CROUCH.  At the time, "insane" was a blanket term that included old age dementia, alcoholism, retardation, etc., anything that made someone mentally abnormal.  Jimmy DEFORD appears to be a brother of William's late wife, Harriet (DEFORD) COUCH.

Note that Mary is Divorced and has returned to using her prior husband's surname, in part, I'd presume, to make life easier for her children.

Mary Ann "SURFACE" is almost certainly Sallie's sister, Mary (DOSBAUGH) CROUCH ANDREWS, erroneously enumerated here with surname SURFACE.  Mary ANDREWS died in West River Township in 1912, and Sallie SURFACE was the informant on her death certificate (see below).  Sallie (DOSBAUGH) SURFACE is the mother of "Cousin Mary." 

12.  Indiana State Board of Health.  Indiana Death Certificates, 1899-2011.  Indiana Archives and Records Administration, Indianapolis, IN (online at Ancestry.com):
Mary's parents are indexed "Dorbaugh," but I would read it as Dosbaugh.  The Informant is almost certainly Mary's sister, Sarah (DOSBAUGH) SURFACE.
