Thomas & Mary Mercer True Darke co. Ohio

Iam looking for info about the Thomas & Mary Mercer True family that moved to Darke co. Ohio from Bourbon, Clark co. Ky. I only know this because one son,my ggg grampa, Thomas H. was born in the Ky area on Feb. 24, 1813. The next son, David P. was born October 11, 1817 in Darke Co. The next recorded move was listed in a book "History of Cass co. Mich" published 1882. It mentions their youngest son, David True came to Pokagon Twp. Cass co. Mich from Ohio by wagon train. He stayed with his sister,their 3rd daughter, Elizabeth & her husband, Whipple Carpenter. The Carpenters moved to Missouri around 1840. Their is also records that state that Thomas & Mary's four sons: Andrew, William, Thomas & David stayed in the Cass and Berrien co. Mich area until their deaths many years later. What happened to Thomas & Mary Mercer True is not known. I hope to find that they stayed in Darke and that I can locate where they are buried.
