Does the name Shubal Lincoln appear on the 1850 census index for Kalamazoo, Michigan, if so what is the page number? I don’t have access to that index.

I am trying to determine if he is living with a first wife or second in 1850.

If I have the correct person, then he seems to have married 1st to Jennett Starr in Geauga County Ohio – year 1834. He then may have married 2nd to Cynthia (probably Brown) who appears in the:

1860 census of Kalamazoo, Michigan as follows:
Family number 842/841
Shubal A. Lincoln, age 55, carpenter, real est. $6000, personal estate $1000. b. Vermont
Cynthia Lincoln, age 46, female, born Ohio
Julius Lincoln, age 22, dressmaker, born Ohio
Carlos D. Lincoln, age 19, male, clerk, born Michigan
Ellen Lincoln, age 12, female, born Michigan
Emily Lincoln, age 9, female, born Michigan
Marietta, Lincoln, age 7, female, born Michigan
Austin Lincoln, age 4, male, born Michigan

Based on the birthplaces of the last five children, Shubal would have moved to Michigan between the years 1838 to 1841, so he probably is also listed in the Michigan 1840 census index. – Need Page number

Are there any published records for those cemeteries located in the city of Kalamazoo where the Lincolns are buried?

Anyone else working on the Lincoln family?

Thanks for any help.
