"Nons" must be a mis-reading of "Noris."

2.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #5 of 10; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1840 MO Montgomery Co. Upper Loutre Twp. p. 196B Ln. 26 William Strawbe 100 010 - 100 010 001 0300000 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Samuel (b. 1836/7)
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = William (b. 1812/3)
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Nancy (b. 1838/9)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Phoebe (b. 1812/3)
1 female 60-69 1770-1780 = Phoebe's mother?
3 persons employed in agriculture
William's parents are both still alive and living together, so the elderly woman is almost certainly Phoebe's widowed mother.  The enumerator obviously didn't understand how to use the "occupation" field because the only adult male farmer is William.  Montgomery Co. is adjacent to Audrain Co., where William's parents were living and where William and his family were living in the next census.
