2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #8 of 13):  York Twp., Elkhart Co., IN, Roll, p. 54B, 734/754, enumerated 22 Aug 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Mary           " 20 F       Ind
Almeda         "  1 F       "
Polly A Hanley 40 F       Maine

Apparently, this is the record that has everyone calling him "Eli," but Eli is not a nickname for Ebenezer, and I wonder if the entry isn't "Eb," not "Eli"?  Silas is HENLEY in 1860.
