Israel M. PURDY, 64, farmer, NY DE DE, & wf. Nancy, 60, PA PA PA, are on the 1880 Census at Elmore, Faribault, MN. That's south of Blue Earth, on the Minnesota - Iowa line.
Israel PURDY, 24, MN OH OH; wf. Mary, MN IN IN; son John 2 MN, Twp. 107, Moody Co., DT.
The latter information about where Israel's parents were born may be a clue to the migration pattern. Census data is only as accurate as the knowledge of the informant and skill of the census taker.
The database of the 1880 Census is now online at FamilySearch.org.
