ROBINETT posted by Gloria Atwater on Monday, February 1, 1999

Hi Everyone, I'm trying to help Gary Clifton, who is also researching ROBINETTs. Please can anyone look at the 1870 Ray County Census? We are trying to find Mordecai and Ann L. ROBINETT and family, who are supposed to have moved to Missouri in 1868, and settled in Ray Co. If anyone can look, I would be very grateful, as we want to know who is in the ROBINETT household of 1870, names, ages, occupations, etc. Please someone help, as we have been chasing these folks all over the place! Thanks so much, Gloria Atwater
