Berry-Dames-Chastain 1880 census connections!

Open letter:
In the 1880 census below two familes are listed. In one family is Thomas Berry age 12. In the other, Ona age 5. These two married and had at least one child. They named him Edgar. Thomas had his younger brother living with him at some point. That would be Ervin (Urvan) for some reason in this census he is listed as Vivian? That must be a typo. Ervin was my gr. grandad. I am not sure why he was living with Thomas, but I now know that he was. I am not even sure when their dad John Berry died, but that is why in this 1880 census they were living with Sadie's family. Ervin and his wife were married in Henrietta Co, MO. He was 18 and she 13. If this is ringing any bells please post a reply so we can get together with some family info. Hope to chat with you soon, Wendy.

Oh, quick side note, John Chastain married Mary Ann Pulse. aka Mary Chastain. I think that family history (Chastain) traces back to Charost, France 1662.
