Benjamin Butler in 1880?
Issue 47 located the likely 1870 census enumeration for Ellen Butler, wife of the elusive Ira Sargent.
This census entry in 1880 appears to be the family in Drywood Township, Vernon County, Missouri.
There are a few inconsistencies when comparing this 1880 census entry to the apparent census entry for the family, but we'll look at those in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues in the next month or so. I'm trying to give readers a break from Ira and Ellen (Butler) Sargent, but I've been making breakthroughs on their family recently and it's hard not to share them.
