Looking for information on the Joseph Howell family of Floyd County; The family lived in Alum Ridge District in the 1900 USC:

Joseph age 63 b VA
wife Mary F age 48 born VA
son George age 19
dau Mary L age 14
son Joseph age 10

Found the family in the 1880 Floyd County census, including my great grandfather, Ferdinand Howell b. 1864, listed as Joseph's nephew, along with his sister, Laura, listed as niece. Ferdinand/Laura's parents, Isaac/Mary Howell,lived in Patrick County VA in the 1870 census, apparently died prior to 1880 and Ferdinand and Laura moved into Joseph's household.

I have been unable to locate the family/family members in 1910 census.
