Thank you for your effort. I really appreciate it but I don't think The William Matherly on the 1880 census is My G Grandfather as he was living in IL by then. There is a possibility This one could be his father. Did they show the age on the 1880 census? My g grandfather would have been 38 then and I guess his father would have been between 58 and 70. I have no info on him other than his first name, William. Thanks again.
