My research in the census records suggests that Thompson Young married Elida Hanna:

I found on Ancestry.com the WPA marriage record of Thompson and Elida Knepper and have wonder it if was extracted incorrectly.
Ancestry.com., Indiana Marriage Records Index, 1845-1920. (Provo, UT: Ancestry.com, 2000. Original Data: Works Progress Administration. Index to Marriage Records Indiana: Indiana Works Progress Administration, 1938-1940.) Huntington County Indiana Marriage Records 1837 - 1883 Name: Elida J. Knepper Spouse: Thompson E. Young Marriage Date: 12 Sep 1869 Book: E OSPage: 56 County: Huntington.
I would be interested in your opinion of this. Thanks.
