Kightlingers in Ohio

I have real conflicting stories on the family move from Crawford Co. PA to OH so need help to sort it out. They were in Marion Co and Union Co after coming to Ohio.

I found a 1880 census record where Abm (Abraham?)Kightlinger, his wife Cynthia (Cynthia Grubb?) and their two-year-old son Elmer E were in Tazewell Co, IL at the time of the census.

These two adults started out in Union Co Ohio and were, according to Cynthia Grubbs family tree married in about 1865. I know Elmer Ellsworth Kightlinger was born in 1868 and ended up in Wabaunsee, Kansas. I also learned that Ashley Kightlinger was married to Cynthis's sister, Amanda Grubb. Unsure how Ashley is related to Abraham.
