2.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #61 of 74):  District No. 4, Audrain Co., MO, p. 183B, 404/426, enumerated 12 Sep 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
Almerna Davis 22 M   Farmer   Ia
Mary      " 22 F       Ia
Isabell   " 8/12 F       Mo
Listed next to David & Lucy DAVIS, who are probably Almarian's parents.  Back then, "Ia" was the abbreviation for "Indiana" (Iowa did not become a state until 1846, and it took awhile for people to shift to using "Ind" as the abbreviation for Indiana).

3.  1860 Census Index/Images (online at Genealogy.com, Image #8 of 26):  Hickory Creek P.O., Cuivre Twp., Audrain Co., MO, Roll 606 (Book 1), p. 760, PN 18, 124/132, enumerated 11 Jul 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
A. Davis 40 M   Farmer   3000 Mo
Mary  " 35 F         Mo

Ellec " 10 M         Mo
Alice "  8 F         Mo
David "  6 M         Mo
Mary  "  1 F         Mo
George Mills 13 M         Mo
"Ellec" appears to be an attempt to spell, "Alec."  Most of the ages and some of the birthplaces are off, but there can be little doubt these are our subjects a big thank you to Patricia Summers Smith for pointing this record out to me because I had overlooked it.
