Hi, Verlaine ~
You may just have to read through the 1880 census page by page, though admittedly, Chicago will a bear to do (do you have an idea of the district they lived in?). That's the way I found a GGGF after giving up on searching all the known variations of his name. When I found him, the spelling of his surname was way off; it wasn't even phonetically spelled. Fortunately, it was a much smaller town, though!

> ...If they are not found in the 1880 census where else can I look? I did find them in the city directories for 1884-1886-1887 showing Frank Pfannenstill living at 105 Cornelia in Chicago. This is where my grandfather was born in 1885...
> I found the death certificate for Frank with the surname spelled PFAUNENSTILL. Just by accident. I don't believe I found Frank anywhere in 1880. On later census I have the family saying they came to the US in 1873. I was lucky in one way. Most of my ancestors stayed in Chicago...
