I had to run another internet screen, but I found an 1830 map of northern Indiana, which only had statehood about 14 years earlier.

A description states: This map illustrates the fourteen-year-old state during the time of the founding of the Indiana Historical Society. Two-thirds of the state had been settled, and negotiations continued between Native Americans and newcomers in the northern region. Watercolors outline the borders of the counties. County seats and other towns are noted. Indiana boundaries are shown along with township and range lines.

The web address is: http://images.indianahistory.org/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/dc014&CISOPTR=91&REC=2

The map looks as if only two counties are outlined on the Michigan border, and perhaps LaGrange and Steuben aren't in existence yet. You can not have a census where there are not counties is my point. However, I feel for ya! In that great northern forested area, in the wilds of a new country, I have lost ggg grandparents as well! (Believe it or not.) And it wouldn't surprise me that your the webperson that has a record on my ancestors. If that is the case, we WILL meet again! See ya!
