Oscar A. Anderson (Sr.) Household - US 1880 Census

I've decided to focus my energy on the Anderson side of the family...Troy's paternal grandmothers family. So, I'm starting with a timeline and filling in the documents I would expect to find for the family. Birth, Marriage, Death records and Censuses. There are other "side" documents too, but I won't know what I should look for until I have a base of "events" to work around.

Here's how this family relates to Troy:

This first census is actually Troy's great-great Grandfather and his young wife and child in 1880. This was taken 4 months before Troy's great-grandfather was born, so Thirza (or Thersea) would have been pregnant at this point.
