I am looking for information on Jacob Baxter that lived in Rush County Indiana. Jacob was married to Lydia Bell and both were in the 1850 census with a daughter Hannah McCabe in the household. Jacob was born abt 1764 in Maryland and Lydia abt 1775. Hannah was born abt 1795. They had another daughter Nancy that married Benjamin Thompson in Scott County, Kentucky and moved from Kentucky to Platte County, Missouri and later Atchison County, Kansas.

In the 1850 census is also a James Baxter, born in Kentucky and a brick layer that I believe is Jacob's son.
