2.  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

Trussey 30 M   Laborer   Inda
Widow Elizabeth (MILLER) ISABELL is either Trussey's mother or stepmother (second wife of his father, Thomas ISBELL).  If the early censuses are to be trusted, Trussey was born 1825-30, so he can't be age 30.  Note that he is age 36 in the 1860 census, and while neither age appears to be correct, the younger one has to be closer.  This is the only ISBELL/etc. household in the county.  I can't find Trusten's ex/estranged wife, Myra, nor his son, William, unless he's the William listed here, in which case he should have been listed below Trussey.

Isbel Trussie 50 M W Farmer 450 200 Kentucky

Is this Trussie's wife or his step-mother?

6.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).  One file here makes Trusten's wife the daughter of James Thomas OSBORN & Ruth Nelson of Franklin Co., IN.  (Note that, among other things, Franklin County and Sullivan County are on opposite sides of Indiana.)
