    1850 Henry Gines Census Pages (1 of 2) from www.ancestry.com

    1850 Census states he was a farmer and had $0.00.

    Allyson Tilton states they lived in Lawrence County, Illinois from at least 1840 - 1883. She states both of Esther's parents were born in Pennsylvania. We (Wanda Gines?) have her father being born in Baden, Germany.

    1860 Henry Geines Census
    1860 Henry Geines Census
    1860 Henry Geines Census Pages. For years we could not find Henry Geines in the 1860 Census. The problem was that the name was spelled as Goins. From www.ancestry.com

    1860 Olive Township, Lawrence Co, IL census records:

    Henry Goines, 48 years old, farmer, owns 3,500 acres, born in PA
    Easter, 47, born in Ohio
    Amanda, 21, born in Ohio
    Henry, 14, born in IL
    Philip, 13, born IL
    Catherine, 11, born IL
    Fannie, 9, born IL
    Easter, 2, born IL
    1870 Henry Geines Census
    1870 Henry Geines Census
    1870 Henry Geines Census Page from www.ancestry.com. The names on this census page do not directly match the family given names or birthdates. The place and neighbors are correct compred to other censuses. We are guessing that a neighbor tried to fill in the information for the census taker and got the details wrong.

    ================

    1870 Olive Township, Lawrence Co, IL census records:

    This is a very strange census record and it is not clear what to make of it. This seems to be true for many census records in 1870 where either the family is missing, or has inaccurate information written about it. It appears as if the census taker did not go to the house but got information from neighbors. It seems likely that this is the correct Henry, partly due to the fact that the neighbors are the same as in the 1860 census records, but it cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Henry Guines, 50 years old, farmer, born in PA
    Susan, 47, born in PA
    David, 22, born in IL
    Maria, 19, born Il
    Martin, 16, born in Il
    Margaret, 12, born IL

    =================
    Henry Geines:
    1880 Lawrence Co, IL census records:

    Henry Gines, 67 years old, farmer, born in PA, both parents born in PA
    Easter, 66, born in PA, parents born in PA (this is obviously incorrect.)
    Catharine, 31, born IL
    Easter, 22, born in IL

    They are living a few houses away from Henry Silas Gines.
