The extracted information for the household, enumerated on 10-11 June 1880, is:
* D.J. Smith - white, male, age 41, married, born N.Y., father born N.Y., mother born N.Y.
The source citation for this record is:
1880 United States Federal Census, Pottawatomie County, Kansas, Population Schedule, Shannon township: Page 243D, dwelling #125, family #125, D.J. Smith household; digital image, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication T9, Roll 393.
The errors and omissions in this entry include:
* Devier J. Smith was probably born in May 1839, so his age is correct (this is important because other records - Bible, obituary, gravestone, newspaper) say he was born in 1842. I don't know why he doesn't have an occupation in this record. Devier Smith has an entry in the 1880 Agricultural Census in Shannon also.
