Andrew's son John Maiden must have died by 1839 as his wife Malinda had remarried Levi Johnson by that date -- they had had three children: Sarah who would now be 6, Samuel 3 and John 1 as of 1840 -- curious that this John Maiden almost exactly matches, and no Levi Johnson was found nearby (only in Fountain, Hendricks, Parke and Putnam -- not clear where Malinda and the children are). In 1840, Abner 29 and Margaret Ann Goben 24 have been married for seven years, and have a daughter America, age 3, and a son John, age 5. The other male is unknown and does not show up on the 1850 census, so is probably a child who died young.
