I couldn't find Peter McGee in MO in 1870. I think thi smight be him
in MS. The Peter McGee in Bolivar in 1870 wasn't still there in
1880.

I searched the 1870 Census for an African American or Native
American named Caroline b. between 1852 & 1858 in KY, living in
Greene Co., MO, and found only one. This doesn't prove that she's
your ancestor, your caroline could have been living elsewhere in
1870, but it is a potential lead, at least.

1870 Census Campbell, Greene Co., MO

Mary Cranne? 13 F W b. MO
Caroline McRobert 15 F B b. KY
Frank Kinney 17 M W Farm Hand b. MO

She was the only McRobert I could find living in Greene Co., MO.
