Working On John Van Buskirk Heirs

I am currently working on the project of finding the lost child of John Van Buskirk. John died in 1839/1840 in Madison Co Indiana. He owned 200 acres of prime land. There were 7 heirs. Six of them had quit claimed their share of the farm by August 1856. The last heir (or the descendants of this person) didn't quit claim their share until 1870-1877. This last heir's share was divided among 7 people. None had the surname VanBuskirk! Stay tuned as I try to determine who this seventh child was.
