Query: ABBOTT Jackson or Scott Counties

Looking for information on Isaac Newton ABBOTT b. Feb 1869 his birthplace may have been either Seymour, IN or Scott Co,. IN  We have been able to locate only one record for him before his marriage in 1894 in Montana. 1870 census show age 1, living with the family of Wm. H and Margaret JONES. The census was taken in Vienna, Scott, IN.  A few listings apart on the same census were a family of John and Mary ABBOTT. We have speculated that he may have been living with relatives because his mother could not care for him but have no facts to support that.  I have not been able to locate him on subsequent censuses with either of these families.  Were any orphanages in the 1870s and 1880s in Indiana?
