Frances Canby, Israel Canby's daughter or Mary P Canby's daughter

I have been researching Israel T Canby's (b. 1779) family. In the 1850 Boone County, Kentucky, there is a Frances Canby, born about 1849, listed in the Charles Canby household. Charles was the brother of General Edward Canby. There is no relationship listed of Frances Canby to any of the members of the family. I have seen is supposed that Frances Canby was Israel Canby's daughter.

However, in the 1880 Marion County, Missouri census there is a Fannie Waters listed is listed as Mary P (Canby) Waters' daughter. She is listed as 31 years old. I believe that Frances Canby is Mary P Canby's illegitimate daughter. I believe that Mary P later married a Mr. Finley and Frances (Fannie) took his last name.

Anyone care to comment on these conclusions?
