I must apologize for an error in my last post, Scarlet W. Madding was not born in Kentucky but in Virginia, his father moved the familyto Kentucky.Scarlet and his family can be found in the 1850 & I believe the 1860 census of Buchanan County, Missouri(the 1850 census is on line) Scarlet died in Platte County, Mo . Here is the report for the 1850 & 1860 Buchanan Cou, MO census::1850Washington Twp, Buchanan County,MO

To answer your question re Scarlet being in Indiana, it is believed that he may have resided there as a member of his sister Nancy Madding Compton's household but it is not known where in Indiana this may have been.It is known that in the 1850 Buchanan Co., Mo census in the household of Husselton Compton there are sons who were born in Indiana to Nancy Madding Compton. Scarlet and his first wife were married in Illinois.
As in my previous post, I wrote that a Madding researcher said that Squire Madding, son of Scarlet, married in Montana and it is apparent that this is the same man you wrote about as in hi corrspondence this researcher related that the wife was A. M.
This researcher is Dave Madding and he has posted messages at this genforum site so you can contact him perhaps through that venue)
