itunes on a computer
make sure it's using your appleID
click the home tab it sort of looks like a house
here you have all apps ever bought with your appleID and you can redownload them
otherwise navigating to the app on the ios device
and choosing to "buy" it will result in a free download as the app is already connected to the appleID

None of the ideas helped, but it might have been a quirk in the operating system. I called Apple and we went through various settings and changes, and nothing helped. (Some of the downloaded apps were, as far as the system knew, present, but didn't appear in the Purchased area of the App Store.) After trying several different things the Tech Rep had me clear some settings and download another free app --I think it was a RESET under the GENERAL area. When we did that, it seemed to kickstart everything and all is as it should be,now. She was as surprised as I was.
Thanks for the ideas, but it's now right, again.
