Only found Eddie Downing in the 1880 Census at age 11. Any more clues?
No, that is all I found also.

Eddie is in the 1880 census as 11 years old. Here is the same family in 1870

I think you are correct. Because in the 1880 census he goes by Eddie. I found his name as George Eddie/Edgar Downing. I already have George's profile. Time to merge the two.
Excellent.
