Treasure Chest Thursday - 1880 U.S. Census Record for D.J. Carringer 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 Carringer great-great-grandparents and their family in Boulder, Boulder County, Colorado:

The entry for the D. J. Carringer family is:

The extracted information for the family, residing in Boulder, Boulder County, Colorado, taken on 19 June 1880, is:

*   D.J. Carringer -- white, male, age 51, married, a carpenter and joiner, born Penn., parents born Penn./Penn
*  Rebecca Carringer -- white, female, age 48, wife, married, keeping house, born Penn., parents born Penn./Penn.
*  Harvey E. Carringer -- white, male, age 27, son, single, farming, born Penn., parents born Penn./Penn.
*  Henry A. Carringer -- white, male, age 26, son, single, millwright and carpenter, born Penn., parents born Penn./Penn.

The source citation for this census entry is:

1880 United States Federal Census, Boulder County, Colorado, Population Schedule, Boulder: Page 525B (stamped), Dwelling #11, Family #11, D.J. Carringer household; digital image, (; citing National Archives Microfilm Publication T9, Roll 89.

For me, the most interesting information in this record are the occupations of D.J. and his sons.  I don't see any information on this record that was incorrect.
