In the 1880 United States Federal Census, I found:

Name Parent or spouse names Home in 1880 (City,County,State) Birth Year BirthPlace Relation

Susan Norris Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1830 Ireland Something other than a direct relationship
Dominick Norris Mariah Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1826 Ireland Self
Mariah Norris Dominick Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1850 Ireland Wife
Edward Norris Dominick, Mariah Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1870 Wisconsin Son
Thomas Norris Dominick, Mariah Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1872 Wisconsin Son
James Norris Dominick, Mariah Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1876 Wisconsin Son
Michael Norris Dominick, Mariah Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1877 Wisconsin Son
Dominick Norris Dominick, Mariah Poygan, Winnebago, WI abt 1878 Wisconsin Son

Household Members: Name Age
Dominick Norris 54
Mariah Norris 30
Edward Norris 10
Thomas Norris 8
James Norris 4
Michael Norris 3
Dominick Norris 2


Again, the data transcriber made an error. The actual census clearly states Dominick Gavin. It seems like the data transcriber just continued Susan Norris’ last name.


At Familysearch.org, I found:
