Im not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

NOTE - -
- - Birth & Death records for Missouri began in 1910 - -

NOTE - -
General Information 1880 census
Colorado was the only state admitted to the Union between 1870 and 1880, bringing the total to 38 states. Eight territories were enumerated: Arizona, Dakota, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Washington and Wyoming territories. Unorganized Alaska was enumerated, but the "Indian Territory" was not enumerated for non-Indians. Unlike any previous censuses, after microfilming, the original 1880 census schedules for several states were transferred from the National Archives to various state archives, state libraries, or universities libraries. Only the original 1880 schedules for Pennsylvania remain at the National Archives. Several originals were later transferred to the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington, D.C.

Therefore, if this family moved to IT [Indian Terr] and was considered WHITE they would not appear on the 1880 census.

1870 - Elizabeth is not listed

1880 - family is not listed in MO
