William Meldrum/Millburn Lake County resident 1850's

Hello, I am trying to trace my ancestor William Meldrum. He came to Millburn from Scotland in about 1854. His wife was Jane/Jean Jamieson. The Meldrum family was quite intertwined with the Jamieson's, with William's daughter Janie marrying a James Stanger Jamieson. What I am specifically looking for is the 1860 and/or 1870 US Census containing William Meldrum. I cannot find one on ancesrty or familysearch. I did find Janie Meldrum on the 1870 census living with a Hockaday family. But no other Meldrum's are to be found. By 1880, they had moved to Missouri. I am trying to pinpoint when the move occured. I speculate between 1860-1870. My great grandfather, Alexander Meldrum, was born in Lake CO in 1859. Coming from Scotland, I would speculate upon a Catholic religious orientaiton. Perhaps if there simply is no record of the 1860 or 1870 census, maybe there are church records or property records with some info?
PS I have thoroughly scoured the Millburn Historical Society webpage. Great info; but looking for more. Thanks.
