2.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #4 of 53):  Covington Co., MS, Roll M432_3371, p. 287B, 22/22, enumerated 23 Aug 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Elias & Ann GOODSON are Margaret's parents.

Cena/Sena and John are Minerva's children from her prior marriage, and I'm wondering if Jefferson might be also.

_______ Horace  2 M W       Louisiana
Kirbin Magt 15 F W       Louisiana
______ Elizabeth 13 F W       Louisiana
Richmond John 11 M W       Louisiana
Who is Norrell?  He wasn't in the household in 1860.  The two KIRBIN children are Mary's from her prior marriage.  John RICHMOND is the son of Robert's prior wife with her prior husband.  The fact that Jefferson isn't listed down with John RICHMOND suggests he really is Robert's son.

5.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #27 of 48):  Precinct No. 7, Red River Co., TX, Roll T9_1324, p. 306C, PN 27, SD 2, ED 105, enumerated 17 Jun 1880, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1880 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

M.C. is probably Margaret C., but who is N.R.?  And why in the world has the enumerator surnamed these two children WEAVER?  Horris must be Horace, but who is Mary?  Listed next to A. G. STEWARD (æ 24, b. LA), whose wife is "Lou J., " so is she his second wife or is Sarah THOMPSON his second wife?

6.  1890 Census:  the 1890 Census Population Schedules were destroyed.
