There are several discrepancies in the census data.It is believed that the son, Carlton Balfour is in the 1880 Census, York Co., Nebraska, Page 518 as follows:
Francis J. Garsage27Illinois Sarah E.Garsage26Illinois Carl M. Balfour22Illinois
Carl M. (C. M.) Balfour later returned to Rice Co., Kansas where his parents were and married in 1885 to Eliza A. Proffitt.After their two children were born in Kansas, they moved to El Paso Co., Colorado where he died.You will find his widow, Eliza A. Balfour and the two children in the 1900 Census of El Paso Co., Colorado Springs.
I am not related to this family except through Eliza Proffitt.I hope that this information will be of some value to the Balfour researchers.
