Where Did Samuel Barto go in 1860/1870?

I'm trying to track Samuel Barto who married Elizabeth Gillman. He died in 1884.

I cannot find him in 1860 or 1870... and in 1880 he shows up with his son in the census. According to the history of Lycoming County, he died in 1884.

In 1860 & 1870, Elizabeth lives with her daughter.

To make it more confusing,there is a tombstone with the right dates for Samuel in Salladasburg Cemetery, but the info for his wife is NOT correct on there.

Some of the info I have -

Samuel Barto
Elizabeth Gillman b1800

lived in Danville Pa

Samuel's father was named John - John Barto was one of the pioneers of Union County.

Children: (source, History Of Union County PA)
Jonathan, of Illinois;


Samuel A. Barto 1830-

Sarah 1819 1897
Henry Forney;

David McDaniel;

Samuel Lorman

Frank Kneibler.

His father was a carpenter, which business he followed all his life. He reared seven children: Jonathan, of Illinois; William; Samuel A.; Sarah, wife of Henry Forney; Catharine, deceased wife of David McDaniel; Susan, wife of Samuel Lorman, and Ellen, wife of Frank Kneibler.

At the age of eighteen he located at Jersey Shore, learned the carpenter's trade, and engaged in that business at Liberty, Tioga county.
