Am looking into the family of Henry Nuse - possibly born circa 1825 Germany.

He is listed as the father of my direct ancestor, Mary Bennett(married name), born May 1851 (according to census.) in New Castle County, DE. (She is listed as age 61 at thetime of her death in 1913.)
I did find a Henry Nuse, 1860 New Castle Cty, Wilmington DE which lists him, age 35, born Germany with a number of children that does not include Mary, but does include Evaline/Evalina. An Evaline Nuse (of the correct age) does reappear in the 1880 census with Mary Bennett's household and is listed as sister-in-law to husband John Bennett
. All the census are consistent with listing Mary's father as being from Germany and her mother from Delaware.
In 1880 there is a Henry Nuse , age 54 from Prussia listed in Philadelphia. HOwever, the wife is much younger and with the birthplaces /data of the children, it is obvious that this is a 2nd wife.
Unfortunately, I do not have much to go on.
Thanks for any help.
