Census for William Sumner

+1 vote
I need help to see if anyone can find William Sumner on the 1880 census. I know he is on the 1870 census in OH which I'm not sure what is him or not on this census it does have a William and Juliette Sumner with daughter's Amy & Loocy. By this Tim though he has a son by the name of William and a daughter by the name of Anne. I know for sure he has been found on the 1850 census.

He was born April 3 1826 in Conn. He passed away Dec 23 1896 Conn.

He married a woman by the name of Juliette Bishop.

I have searched and searched for him and his family and can not find him what am I missing? Am I looking in the wrong places?  

Any help will be very grateful

I believe there is more then 1 William Sumner. My 2nd great grandfather was William P. Sumner.  I have not been able to trace back any further then him at this point.  He lived in the 1800's.

Why would I put sources down if questioning them? I stated in my question where I have looked butbquebut q if this is him or not.

Do you want this out on his sources sure but I want to put correct information not false or intrue information down.

I don't like getting email telling me I can not out inaccurate information down.

I have worded really hard in trying g to correct my mistakes.

Hi Susan I think you misunderstood what I was trying to say. I have access to Findmypast but if you have already looked ,there wouldn’t be any point.

Also if you have found sources you are not completely sure of, you can put them under ==Research Notes ==, with reasons you are not sure, or possible?. Not only would it help others, but if you come back to the profile in the future, you will not have to search again.

I had no intent to upset you
Ty and I'm sorry. You don't realize how many horrible emails I get from here and other places for putting wrong information down.

It is getting to the point I don't even want to look for my ancestors at times because of that.

All I can say is I have looked and question the 1870 census if this is him or not.

He is listed on the 1850 census with is parents and brother Elliot.

I have not been able to find him on anything else.

I have not need able to find him on any other census as of yet.
No problems Susan, Research Notes is a great place to put things you are working on. I will have a look on Findmypast.

William was originally from Connecticut.   You say you found him in the 1870 census in Ohio.  Is there a possibility he went back to Conn prior to the 1880 census?  I know he died in Connecticut and in 1880 Connecticut didn't have a census.   The other possible answer is that there is more then 1 William Sumner.  Is there a possibility that the one you found in the Ohio census was a different William?
