There is a 20 yr. gap in the census records [1880 - 1900] as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's. Add 20 yrs to everyone's 1880 age for the 1900 census.

I am not related to any member of this family.

Census records do not record the “specific locality” of a person’s birth.

Census records only record where a person was born – state or country.

Census records record where a person was living when the census taker came by.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

Columbus does not appear on the 1900 or 1910 census,
