1880 Census of James Joseph Lord's household

You can see that the log cabin at 'Home Place' was rather full in 1880.  James (51) had his wife Sarah's parents staying with them.  The census taker spelled Frank Orlando's name incorrectly as "Arlando".  Their daughters Lilly Jane and Harriet were there, and another son, William and his wife Mariah.  Dr. Joseph Levi, the other son, was in his studies (I believe).  It also looks like they'd taken in 10-year-old Al Radabauh. His record only tells us that his parents were from Ohio, but that he was born in Kansas.
