Sources (n.b., Harrison Twp. was formed from Dayton Twp. in 1841;  Madison Twp. was formed 1809 from Jefferson and Randolph Twps., so the change in township location between 1820 and 1830 was a genuine move, not just a name change):

Based on the numbers alone, this is not our family because, though we have the right number of individuals of each gender, everyone is in the wrong age-class.  Yet… 1) this is the only Jacob WISSINGER (or variation) indexed as being in Ohio [the only other one is in SC], and 2) we know Elizabeth remarried in 1837 in Montgomery Co., so surely they were in Montgomery Co. in the 1830 census.  [I did a page-by-page check of Dayton and Randolph Twps., just in case Jacob had been overlooked there, but he was not found.]

4.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1840 (Broderbund CD-316):  can't find Elizabeth.  She should be living in OH or IN as the wife of Michael STROUP.
