3.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #88 of 90):  District 2, Todd Co., KY, p. 288B, 587/587, enumerated 11 Sep 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Gideon  " 16 m     "
Susan   " 14 f     "
Jesse & Mary SMITH are almost certainly Rosina's parents.  Apparently Gideon's children prefer living with their grandparents to living with their stepfather.  The big question is: who is Sarah?  Gideon had a sister, Sarah, about the right age, but she got married and is enumerated with her husband in the census.  Or, is the wrong Sarah attached to Gideon's parents?
