Nancy,

I found this on familysearch.org:

TA-DA! This looks like the right family-- just appalling spelling (which happened a lot.) I found them by doing a census search for "Salome" in Marshall County, IN b. ca. 1815-1835.

YOu might want to try looking up alternative spellings such as "COONS", "COON", "KUHN", "KUNZ", "COONTZ", etc. The name got butchered a lot.
