3a.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, but he should be in Jefferson Co., MO.  I did a page-by-page search of Big River Twp., but didn't find him.  The Jefferson County census is extremely difficult to read, so he may be so badly indexed that I don't recognize him.

3b.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1840 (Broderbund CD-316):  can't find, and I really looked.
