Gideon mother in law age 64 born in Ohio parents born in VA residing with the family. Also a Philip Myers listed as boarder age 65 born in Prussia. Census taken 2 June 1880, Osakis Village, Douglas County, Minnesota. It appears that there was a daughter, Mary A., born about 1877 and since she was not on the 1895 census perhaps she was married to Edward Evans by that time. It also appears that Naomi D. and Laoni M. Hoffman were twins, born about 1879.
