    Seeking exact date of a St. Joseph slave auction in 1849

    deb fox Newbie

      What is the exact date of a slave auction that took place in St. Joseph, MO, April or May of 1849, and Robidoux (sp?) was the winning bid for a boy slave? I have all the clues:  the place (St.Joseph, MO), the rough time (Spring 1849), and the who and what: Robidoux and a slave boy, but I would sure love an exact date.  Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks for helping, D.F.
