LeahRaye, think you should just check the 1850 census.  You have the right family but they are in Stewart TN, not Smith County TN.  There is about 140 miles between Stewart & Smith Counties.

She is buried in Somerset KY too, in the "family plot" there.   Off to search for James Riley Robinson!

I cannot locate any results in Stewart county?

I see what you mean - this is strange. But this is from A..ty

   Name      Home in 1850    Birth Year   Birthplace   Gender
Elnora Robinson    Stewart, Tennessee   abt 1846   Tennessee   Female

1850 Census:
Name:   James Robinson
Age:           40
Birth Year:   abt 1810
Birthplace:   Tennessee
Home in 1850:   Stewart, Tennessee, USA
Gender:   Male
Family Number:   272
Household Members:   
Name   Age
James Robinson   40
Ann Robinson   43
Elisa Robinson   19
William Robinson   18
Caroline Robinson   15
Joseph Robinson   10
James Robinson   7
Elnora Robinson   4

I have just checked the familysearch site - not sure what they have done but if you look at the original you will see that the County is shown as Stewart - very strange

The McNairy census is also the Stewart county census.

Familysearch have really messed up this - I wonder how & why?

The National Archives website shows that SMITH AND STEWART counties were in a section together.

I actually found the original image and it DOES say IN THE COUNTY OF STEWART across the top.

That was driving me a little batty.  I know have a county map of TN and lower KY printed out that I am using.  I am finding it truly difficult not to get them mixed up with the LOUDON/ROANE county Robinson.  Wondering if there were a sibling split at some point? 

I am unable to locate ANY death or burial info for James or Ann.  I even tried using ROBERTSON (which their marriage license was filed under). It is ROBINSON on the 1860 and 1850 census.  But Roberson on the 1900.  eesh.

Is there a way to figure out what the dwelling number map was for these census takers?  Like they were dwelling 272 in Stewart county that was visited.  Is there a way to figure out where that dwelling was/  I realize it might not still actually be a home/building anymore.  But was it in the town?  In the more rural areas?  Is that even possible to determine?

Also, I can locate James and Ann on the 1830 census with their one infant daughter born in 1930 in Dickson County and 1840 with their brood of 4, same county in which they were married. Ann's dad is all over the census records with lots of kids but died in 1848. I am trying to locate James as a 1 year old on the 1810 or 11 year old on the 1820, but without sibling sets or parents ages, this is frustrating. 

I narrowed it down to Dickson county to try to start, just because they both seem to have been there already (Ann's father William shows up on the Dickson county census in 1820). This is where the last name gets weird. 

They were married as ROBERTSON and on the 1830 and 1840 census as ROBERTSON.  In 1850 & 1860 it is ROBINSON...

John and Abraham both have 1 or 2 over age 10 on the 1820 (James born in 1809).  That's GUESSING he is living in Dickson in 1820 before he marries Ann in 1829.

And was the name spelled BY the census taker?  Or by the person giving the info?
