I can't find them in the 1880 census either.  Maybe that was about the time they were moving to Indiana and they were missed by the census taker.

I'm wondering if this could possibly be them - though the last name is funky. 

 

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MWV4-6DP : 16 July 2017), Elias Gromsk, Shenandoah, Schuylkill, Pennsylvania, United States; citing enumeration district ED 200, sheet 507A, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 1192; FHL microfilm 1,255,192.

That does appear to be them. It looks like a transcription error due to sloppy writing and poor spelling.
