I noticed you could not find Sanford and family on the 1880 census. Here is what it says and I'm sure you'll see why it would be hard to find.
Township 12, Walker, Alabama
Santfor Wofford, Self, Male, White, 22 yrs, b. GA, Father GA, Mother GA Parlee Wofford, Wife, Female, White, 20 yrs, b. AL, Father AL, Mother AL Mary E. Wofford, Dau, Female, White, 5 yrs, b.

I have a knack for finding people on the 1880 census today. I have been stuck on 3 lines forever and today I found all three. I am a happy person today. I hope this helps others looking for it and of course you.
