Treasure Chest Thursday - 1880 U.S. Census Record for Isaac Seaver Family

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1880 United States Census record for my great-great-grandparents and their family in Leominster, Massachusetts: 

Here's a closeup view of the Isaac Seaver family entry:

The extracted information for the family, residing in Leominster, taken on 11 June 1880, is:

*  Isaac Seaver -- white, male, age 56, married, a blacksmith, born Mass. father born Mass., mother born Mass.

*  Lucretia Seaver -- white, female, age 52, wife, married, keeping house, born Mass., father born Mass., mother born Mass.

*  Nellie Seaver -- white, female, age 18, daughter, single, at home, attended school, born Mass., father born Mass., mother born Mass.

The source citation for this image is:

1880 United States Federal Census, Worcester County, Massachusetts, population schedule,  Leominster: Page 533C (stamped), dwelling #493, family #621, Isaac Seaver household; online image, ( : accessed 29 October 2011); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication T9, Roll 565.

By 1880, Isaac and Lucretia's three married children were raising their families and had census records of their own.  My great-grandfather's 1880 U.S. census record was shown last week in 

Treasure Chest Thursday - the 1880 U.S. Census Record for Frank W. Seaver Family.

There is nothing obviously wrong for the Isaac Seaver family entry in the 1880 U.S. Census.  Unfortunately, there is no address provided for the Isaac Seaver residence.  I think it was probably 7 Cedar Street, but I don't know for sure.
