1850 US Census, Harrison County, Indiana.
I have previously posted a photo of the marriage record for my 3rd-great-grandmother, Rebecca Muck, and followed her husband Jesse A. Smith. After covering Rebecca's parents, John Muck and Ursula Fellme, it makes sense to move down the tree to Rebecca. She was born in Indiana in 1837. Her death certificate lists her place of birth as Harrison County, Indiana. Rebecca and Jesse were married on 27 May 1856, she was 19 years old.
Indiana Marriages, Gibson County.
In the 1860 Census, Jesse and Rebecca were sharing a home with her sister, Julia Ann Muck, and her family with first husband Robert Redman. By 1870, Rebecca and Jesse had their own farm in Gibson County. My earlier post includes photos of the census records for the family.

She passed away on the family farm in Ft. Branch, Indiana on 3 February 1901, after several weeks of battling bronchitis.
