Thank you for the additional information on David Nusbaum and his descendants.I have several letters written in 1978 from Clara Lence Smith which gave me some of the information as well as several family stories.Let me know if you would like copies.
My great-grandfather, Joseph Nusbaum, is the youngest son of Henry, the 11th child of Henry's 13.Joseph lived in Wabash Co, IN; Kent Co, MI; Adams Co IA; and homesteaded in Frontier Co, NE.My grandfather, William David Nusbaum, was born in IN and also homesteaded in Frontier Co. NE.He was the 3rd child of 10.My father was born in Frontier Co, NE and was the 3rd of 4 children.
As for Henry Nusbaum's age, I am not sure how old he was when died.His headstone gives his dates as: born25 Nov 1776 /died 28 Oct 1882. The Census show his age constantly changing: 1820between the ages of 26-44 1830between the ages of 40-49 1840between the ages of 50-59 1850age 66 1860age 83 1870age 74/94 1880age 103
