The 1900 Census for Dunn, Jackson County, Oregon
Booth, Wilburn, born Mar 1849 in Iowa to father born in Virginia, mother in Missouri, farmer, married 22 years (1877/1878)
Elyann, wife, born Feb 1852 in Iowa to both parents born in Indiana
Edger, Nov 1871, widower, IA
Richard, May 1877, 23, Iowa
Artie, born Dec 1877, 12, IA
---But, first, Richard was born in May 1877 and is 23, Artie can't be born in Dec 1877 (7 months later) and only be 12? This Artie was born in Dec 1887...
--The 1880 census of Center, Decatur County, finds Wilburn, 29, Elyann, 27, Edgar 10, Richard 4, and Oren 1.
-----Since this family was in Decatur County in 1880, Artie was born in Dec 1887... this person strongly matches your criteria.

In the 1885 Iowa Census, Wilbur(sic) and Elzann were in Monroe township, Decatur Co.
