It is possible for a person to be in the same Census in two different states, or even in two different townships in the same state. The dates of the Census in the areas in question needs to be examined. I have found the same family in Ohio in the 1860 Census in two different townships, taken a few months apart, and one of the children had a birthday between the two listings. In two different states, possible travel times need to be taken into account. One person was listed with his family in Indiana in the 1870 census, when he had already run off with another woman to Kansas, and was listed there also, but he still owned the property in Indiana.
