I have the 1860 Census for Richland Township, Steuben Co, IN. On it are listed Orsamus, age 48.-farmer, born in Canada,.-- Elizabeth E, age 39 born in NY, --and Manary age 14 born in OH. The census is dated the fifth day of June , 1860. We suspect Sidney, the younger son, died in IN sometime before this census was taken as he was an est. two years younger than Manary. All four family members are on the 1850 census for Richland Township, Steuben Co, IN. I am trying to find parents of Orsamus.
