Looks like there was a Thomas Demsky who died in St. Louis in 1882...

If Thomas died before the 1900 census, and Phoebe remarried, that would explain why they are not showing up in census after 1880 (I couldn't find them either, tried several name variations). I searched the 1900 census in both Council Bluffs and Omaha for any Phoebe (no surname) b 1856 in Wisconsin. No Phebe/Phoebe there. I did not try this technique in St. Louis or elsewhere.

I also searched Find-a-Grave.

I did not use Family Search, just Ancestry.com.

Wish we could find them!

1880
Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie, Iowa
Thomas Demsky 26 b 1854 Michigan father born Vermont, mother b Canada
Phebe Demsky 24 b 1856 Wisconsin
Johny Demsky 5 b 1875 Wisconsin
