Addendum to Hess query; David McBride married Nancy Jane Hamilton in 1844. Some of the children they had together, according to an 1860 US census are: Andrew, Lavisa, Sarah, Thomas D, John C, and Mary. Flora Belle was reportedly their youngest being born around 1870.
I am surmising McBride is a surname of a relative or perhaps his mother's maiden name that was passed along to David Hess as a middle name.
On a Rootweb site for Ripley County I found the following Hess names listed on a page about marriage licenses issued in that county: HESS, HannahLewis Hunter30Aug1849 HESS, JohnNancy Ayres14June1849 HESS, MaryThomas Grimes01Jan1843 HESS, MatthiasPhebe Brunner20June1847 HESS, PeterMelissa Purcell24Nov1844 HESS, ThomasLaurena (M.Lester) 05March1839
Unfortunately, it doesn't share parent's names to help me leapfrog from there in my research.
