Samuel Poffinbarger, Preble County, Ohio 1869

I am trying to find the parents of Samuel Poffenbarger, born in Feb 1842 in Ohio, married to Elizabeth C. Wilkinson in Preble County, Ohio on 21 Mar 1869. Children were Rosa Ann Poffenbarger Plummer born 8 Sep 1870 in Preble County, and Louis or Lewis Poffenbarger born 17 July 1883 also in Preble County.

I can trace Samuel through censuses back to 1870, and then I lose him. There is a Samuel Poffenbarger who is the right age and listed as a day laborer living with Norman and Elizabeth Larken (or Larkin) in Lanier Township in Preble Co when the 1860 census was taken, and the same lad is also recorded as living with the this couple in the 1850 census when they lived in Dixon Township, Preble County. Who are the Larkins? Both were born in Virginia.

Samuel's father is usually listed in censuses as being born in Maryland, and his mother in Ohio.
