The first item in Historical Records is the desired 1850 census.
Click her name to bring up her transcription entry,

It goes on to say that when she was 16 she moved with her foster parents to Elkhart County Indiana. That is where she met Jacob DFlury and they were married (probably in 1864). They stayed in Elkhart long enough for their first born, a son named Henry, to be born before they moved to Cass County. There is no mention of the foster family name.
