ILL. Records also show Jehu purchased in Township 09N 80 acres on 11/25/1848 and another 40 acres on 9/26/1854.

I'm new at this, so does the 80 acres or 40 acres mean anything? What would township 09N and 10N be now? please email me.

POINDEXTER, ROBINETT posted by Gloria M. Atwater on Saturday, January 2, 1999

Howdy everyone! I need some help peeking at census records! Can anyone look at, first; 1850 Macoupin Co. IL census for Harrison S. POINDEXTER and his wife Jane POINDEXTER? Harrison S. also may be found as Samuel POINDEXTER or perhaps even initials H.S. POINDEXTER. There just can't be more than a couple Poindexters in Macoupin Co., so if any are found, one ought to be him! Second; 1860 Macoupin Co. for Richard Jefferson ROBINETT and wife Sarah Kate ROBINETT. He may also be just as R. J. ROBINETTE or ROBINET. He enlisted in the 32nd IL Infantry from Virden in 1861, so I would think he should be found on the 1860 Macoupin census. Please, can anyone take a peek? I will gladly pay copies, postage. Thanks sincerely, Gloria M. Atwater, Gardnerville, NV

As Gary noted below, in 1861 he enlisted in the 32nd IL Infanty from Virden, so I'm hoping the marriage was in Macoupin Co. Can anyone help?

POINDEXTER, ROBINETT posted by Gloria M. Atwater on Sunday, January 31, 1999

Hi There! Please, PLEASE can anyone help me? I am desperately trying to find someone with access to the 1870 Macoupin Co. census. The names I would like to locate are ROBINETT and POINDEXTER. There were 2 main Robinett families, Enoch and Mordecai. Mordecai died in 1868, but his widow, Ann Robinett, should still be there, with probably a couple kids still at home. Also 60-something Enoch ROBINETT, and grown sons from both families, one named Pleasant ROBINETT. POINDEXTER would be Stephen Harrison and/or Jane POINDEXTER, (he may have died,) and their 20-ish son George and a teenaged daughter, Florilla Alice or Flora POINDEXTER. Last, Sarah A. ROBINETT who was the widowed daughter of SH & Jane, and married a Robinett boy who died in the Civil War. Sarah might have 2 young children with her. Please can anyone look? Any Poindexter or Robinett family from 1870 Macoupin would be a treasure. We have been trying to get this family tracked down! If anyone will help, I would be ever so grateful! Thanks and best regards, Gloria Atwater
