Citing this Record:
"United States Census, 1880," index and images, <i>FamilySearch</i> ( : accessed 22 Sep 2014), Margaret Overstreet in household of Albert Overstreet, Canton, Lewis, Missouri, United States; citing sheet 43B, NARA microfilm publication T9.

This record states that Margaret's parents were both born in Germany. I would check for Brindle's born in Germany who are living in Indiana in the 1850 census. You will have to be careful of the ages. I saw a Frederick Brindle in Clark County, Indiana who was the right age to be a brother to Margaret.
