No, It is not hard at all. They had to be "living" then, however.

First go to the LDS site here:
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=census/search_census.asp

Select 1880 United States Census
Type only the surname of the family member born between 1800-1840 you are trying to locate

In the birth year you type 1800.
In the birth range you select + or - 20 years.
Census state PA (if that is where your family member lived)
----
That takes care of anyone born between 1800-1820
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Then you follow the same procedure but this time you type
1820 for the birth year. In the birth range,you select + or - 20 years.
That will cover the individuals born between 1820 and 1840.
Add the two lists and you have the names of those individuals who were alive in 1880.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You could search for anyone born before 1800 also by following this procedure.
