Emanual Allensworth: Dead in KY in 1846 or in OH after 1850?

I see many pedigrees showing Emanuel died in Christian Co., KY in 1846. I haven't seen any documentation to substantiate this. There is however an 1850 Census return showing Emanuel and Catherine alive and well in Salem Twp., Jefferson Co., OH, ages 70 and 68 respectively. Clearly Emanuel survived 1846 -- unless that was a different Emanuel. But the two are usually shown having the identical parents: Philip and Catherine Butler Allensworth.
If anyone knows what's going on here, please advise. Otherwise, all the 1846ers should document sources or correct their trees.

Cheers!

Scott
