Thomas ISBELL
Starling CAMPBELL
Elizabeth Hope MILLER
WARNING:  this family group sheet is not entirely substantiated.  It may be that two different Thomas ISBELL's are being mixed up here, but even if not, I'm not certain which wife is the mother of which children because we don't know when Thomas married Elizabeth.  However, my interest here is CARRICO (second husband of Trusten's ex-wife), so this family is getting too far afield for me to spend any more time on it.  Caveat emptor!
Husband:  Thomas ISBELL / ISBEL / ISABELL
Birth:  1794-1800
Death apparently:  1845-50, Sullivan Co., IN
Marriage-1:  29 Jul 1815, Madison Co., KY
Wife-1:  Starling CAMPBELL
Birth:  1794-1804, possibly 1800-1804
Marriage-2:  date unknown
Wife-2:  Elizabeth Hope MILLER
Birth:  1805/6, KY or IN
Death:  aft. 1860 census
Father:  Francis S. MILLER (1779-1836)
Children:
  1.  (Son A) ISBELL, b. 1810-20
  2.  (Daughter A) ISBELL, b. 1810-20
  3.  (Daughter B) ISBELL, b. 1810-20
  4.  (Son B) ISBELL, b. 1820-25
  5.  (Daughter C) ISBELL, b. 1820-25
  6.  (Daughter D) ISBELL, b. 1820-25
  7.  Trusten "Trus / Trussey / Trussie" ISBELL, b. 1825-30
  8.  (Daughter E) ISBELL, b. 1825-30
  9.  Nancy ISBELL, b. 1833/4
10.  Eliza ISBELL, b. 1837/8
11.  Thomas ISBELL, b. 1839/40
12?  William ISBELL, b. 1844/5
13.  George ISBELL, b. 1845/6

The first three children, enumerated in the 1820 census, do not appear in the 1830 census, so either the family experienced a massive tragedy or two Thomas ISBELL's are being mixed up here.

Other Kin:
.  Amanda ISBELL (possibly her married name), b. 1833/4, IN
.  Mary E. ISBELL, b. 1857/8, IN

1820 KY Jessamine Co. Roll M33_24 p. 77 Ln. 28 Thomas Isbel 100100-20100-0-100 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1810-1820 = Son A
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Thomas
2 females 9 or under 1810-1820 = Daughter B
= Daughter A 
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Wife
1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a "new," more precise age class.

3.  1830 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #33 of 76; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1830 IN Sullivan Co. Roll 26 p. 173 Ln. 4 Thomas Isbell 110 001 - 120 010
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1825-1830 = Trusten
1 male 5-9 1820-1825 = Son B
1 male 30-39 1790-1800 = Thomas
1 female 4 or under 1825-1830 = Daughter E
2 females 5-9 1820-1825 = Daughter D
= Daughter C
1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Wife
Thomas is the only ISBELL/ISBEL/etc. household in the county.

4.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #25-26 of 90; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 IN Sullivan Co. Roll 94 pp. 61B-62A Ln. 14 Thomas Isbell 101 000 100 - 111 101 000 0200000
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Thomas (b. 1839/40)
1 male 10-14 1825-1830 = Trusten
1 male 40-49 1790-1800 = Thomas
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Eliza (b. 1837/8)
1 female 5-9 1830-1835 = Nancy (b. 1833/4)
1 female 10-14 1825-1830 = Daughter E
1 female 15-19 1820-1825 = Daughter C or D
1 female 30-39 1800-1810 = Wife 
2 person employed in agriculture
Thomas is the only ISBELL/ISBEL/etc. household in the county.

5.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #37 of 72):  District No. 105, Haddon Twp., Sullivan Co., IN, Roll M432_173, p. 216A, 232/234, enumerated 17 Aug 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Elizabeth Isabell 44 F     200 Ky
Nancy 16 F       Inda
Eliza 12 F       Inda
Thomas 10 M       Inda
George  4 M       Inda
William  5 M       Inda
Trussey 30 M   Laborer   Inda
Trussey ISBELL is Elizabeth's step-son (child of her husband's first marriage).  Earlier censuses indicate Trusten had to be born 1825-30, so an age of 30 here is too old.  I have no explanation for why William is out of order, unless possibly he is Trussey's son, William Nelson ISBELL, though in which case he should have been listed below Trussey.  This is the only ISBELL/ISABELL/etc. household in the county.

6.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #27 of 34):  Carlisle P.O., Jefferson Twp., Sullivan Co., IN, Roll M653_298, p. 90, PN 90, 615/617, enumerated 3 Jul 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Elizabeth Isbel 54 F       50 Ind
Amanda      " 26 F         "
Mary E      "  2 F         "
I don't know how Amanda relates to Elizabeth (unless she's daughter, Nancy), but Elizabeth is too old to be Mary's mother.  Is Amanda a widowed daughter-in-law and Mary Amanda's daughter?  Listed two household from Myra J. (__?__) CARRICO, the re-married ex-wife of Elizabeth's step-son, Trusten ISBEL

7a.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  not found, not unless she's the Elizabeth living with Trussie (see next source).

7b.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #39 of 57):  Merom P.O., Haddon Twp., Sullivan Co., IN, Roll M593_361, p. 112A, PN 39, 292/273, enumerated 20/21 Jul 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Isbel Trussie 50 M W Farmer 450 200 Kentucky
_____ Elizabeth 60 F W Keeping house     "
Is the Elizabeth here Trussie's wife or his step-mother?!

8.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  definitely not found.
