in the 1880 US Census on LDS/Family Search (free site):
comments powered by
George Colton b. 1854 WI farmer age 26
father b. IL, mother b. NY
location: Green Lake, Green Lake Co, WI
wife Stella b. 1858 MA age 22
father b. ME, mother b. MA
GYZA Colton - daughter - 7 mo. b. WI
another entry for a Colton in same location:
Emma Colton b. 1855 WI age 25
parents: both b. NY (probably not)
teaching school and living in the household of John
I would think this is a sister or relation to George Colton.
but there is no reference to this in the census.
Note the different spelling of GYZA ....
