Census Sunday - 1860 US Federal Census - Springfield, Illinois - Francis Smith; 1850 US Federal Census Attica, Indiana - Robert Weast (Whiste)

Schedule 1 - Free Inhabitants in Dist. No. 16 City of Springfield in the county of Sangamon State of Illinois enumerated by me, on the 19th day of July 1860. J H Currier Ass't Marshall.
Line 20 1305 1306 Robert Whiste 35 M Machinist $50 Germany
Line 21                   Martha  " "       22 F                         Ind
Line 22                    Francis Smith 6 M                            "

Francis Smith was born in 1853 so the age of 6 is about right. I also have a marriage for Martha Smith and Robert Whiste in Fountain county, Indiana.

 Schedule I Free inhabitants in Logan Township Fountain county in the state of Indiana enumerated by me, on the 30th day of Sept 1850 John McCall Ass't Marshall.

Line 8 Robert Weast 26 M Machinist Germany

I am pretty confident that Robert Weast in 1850 is the same as Robert Whiste in 1860. Martha was living with parents in 1850 in Warren county which is very close to Fountain county. So I believe that Francis Marion Smith's sister Martha is the Martha that is married to Robert Weast (Whiste).
