John Absher and Jane Crisp

Classification: Query
I am looking for any info on John Absher/Abshier/Abshear/Abshere b. 1806 Kentucky and Jane Crisp b. 1819 Tennessee. What census I have found they lived in Ste Genevieve Co., Missouri.
Jane Crisp Marriage to John Absher 6 Feb 1848 in Ste Genevieve Co., Missouri.
The problem I am having is it appears, through census there are 8 children, although I don't think she was the natural mother to at least 7 of them. By looking at dates there was only one child between them, Sarah Rebecca Absher b. 1849 Ste Genevieve Co., Missouri.
Knowing how things were back in 1800's I can't believe these two lived together and her having children outside of marriage. Especially 7 of them.
This has been a real puzzle to me. If there is anyone out there that can enlighten me on this family I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank You,
Sue Abshier
