Jacob/Ruth Foust Wells County Indiana

I understand this family
Listed on the 1860 Liberty, Wells Co, IN census:
Jacob Foust 35 born OH
Ruth 30 born OH
William 12 born OH
William T. 9 born IN
Priscilla J. 7 born IN
Daniel 5 born IN
Reddick 3 born IN
Hannah 1 born IN
to be the son of Daniel Foust born 1803 in Penn. and Frances born 1809 Penn.
Supposedly Daniel and family moved from Highland, Ohio to Wells Co, Indiana.

Dr. Faust only lists 1 son named William born to Jacob and Ruth. Does anyone know why? William T later marries Sarah and are found in the 1870 ChesterTwp, Wells Co, In census.

What about the other William? I believe he remains in Liberty Twp, Wells Co, IN and is living with Francis Foust born 1849 in Indiana (daughter of Daniel Foust, his aunt). Daniel's son Ira born 1843is living with a Barton family two dwellings before. And Joseph Foust (brother of Daniel) is listed six dwellings after.

I'm trying to prove William's parentage- in 1871 William Foust marries Nancy Benjamin in Wells Co., Indiana. Does anyone know about the other William listed in the 1860 census?
Puzzled- Pam Bradley
