This 1880 census information seems to verify what is on the profile.  I do see a different Martha Jane McCarty in the records with different parents but that is a different Martha I would think at a quick glance.  A link has been posted to the census in the comment box for the profile manage to apply to the profile.

The martha J Jennings in this census is the daughter of John M Jennings and Martha A Jennings.   This Martha J Jennings, married Cornelius McCarty.
So does that mean it's still the correct 1980 census?

You mean the correct 1880 census, right?  It is, as Martha Jane Jennings, is in it at age 13.   Later she married Cornelius Lewis Mccarty.  Her Mother, is Martha A. Jennings, and is age 40 in this census.  If you want you can click on Martha Jane Jennings and attach that.  Bobby
