The 1850, Morgan Co IL census does show Peter Davenport, age 23, with wife Phoebe age 17 and a one-year-old Elizabeth. Malissa Masters, age 22, was living with them. Only a couple of pages away there are several young Masters children living with a Boyer family. Could these be children of Masters 2nd marriage? They are William age 14, Jilbert & Albert age 10, and Emily age 8. The Boyers are Jacob age 32 and Milly, age 23 [could this Milly be a daughter of Millie Parrott by a previous marriage?]
