Looking for descendants of David Nelson and Isabel Hyndman

I am trying to build the tree out to the grandchildren of my distant uncle David Nelson and his wife Isabel Hyndman.  I've found several of their children on censuses, but the fates of these children are proving very difficult to determine.

Most of the hints I have come from the town histories of Ryegate, VT and Barnet, VT.

Ryegate History says they had 9 children who all settled in the west

Barnet History lists some names of children but not much else.

I've searched through Familysearch and a bit on Chronicling America but have yet to find many solid sources for this family.  Any help is appreciated.

when the Corona virus lockdown is over, you might be able to call the library in Jasper and get a list of cemeteries open back then and still maintained to trace the unmarried daughters.

Hi Anne, Robert Stanley Nelson was born too recently to have been the son of this David and Isabel.  Thanks anyway!
