Samantha Boyd Andress Nusbaum Ruple

I recently tried to link Samantha Boyd Andress Nusbaum Ruple # 160800708 to Thomas Boyd # 28181085 who would seem to be her father based on the note in her bio that he was married to Caroline Berky, who is also her mother. She would appear to be the 10 year old enumerated in the household of Thomas and Caroline Boyd in Clinton, Elkhart, Indiana in 1860. This same family was also enumerated in Walnut Creek, Holmes, Ohio in 1850. The Holmes County location matches the birthplace of Samantha listed on her death record. Samantha also lived in Elkhart County when she was married to Christian P. Nusbaum. After his death she married Jonas Ruple and moved to Michigan. As the reason given for rejecting the linkage was that this was a different person I am wondering what information you have that I am missing? Would appreciate any help you can offer. Feel free to replay to my email.

Smith's in Stillwater, OK
Hi Gary, I see that you have uploaded photos on multiple of my Smith ancestor's memorials and I find that it would take a long time to request each individual 1. I always document who took the photo and put the link to the memorial with the photo, so with that said I was wondering if I may get permission to use your photos in my tree on on this Smith line and all those related to them please? Thanks!
