oops. Rebecca "Rust" is in the book. It says "Fisher" a few pages later... Here is what the earlier passage says:

Census shows Henry present, then absent. You will recall that Henry, son of Joseph II, fathered 17 children, 9 or 10 of whom apparently were by his first two wives, Nancy Hawkins and Ann Stonebraker. He married Rebecca Rust February 25, 1841, records show.

The 1850 federal census finds Henry, then 52, and Rebecca, 39, in Patoka Township, Dubois County, Indiana with five children ranging in ages from 9 years to 7 months. Their names: Davis, Louisa, Jethro, Anna and Solomon.

In the 1860 census, Rebecca is shown as the only head of the household. (Henry had left by then with his load of hogs down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, never to be heard from again.) By this census, the number of children had increased from five to seven, adding Morgan and Rebecca I. A William Rust, 24, also is listed as a member of the household, likely a son by the former marriage of Rebecca (Fisher... aha) Rust Enlow.
