Eli Thompson Stone Household 1880 US Census Record

I was a little hasty in my wondering as to whether gr-gr-gr Granpa Eli was a machinest when he lived in Syracuse, NY prior to moving to De Soto, Missouri.  In checking the 1880 senses listed on the LDS genealogy website, Eli was indeed a machinest in Syracuse, and probably for the railroad (sorry, but I presently have no knowledge of railroad history in northern New York) .

In looking at the 1880 census record for Eli and his household, I find it interesting that his younger sister and brother, Florence and Samuel (Werden) Stone, are living with Eli and his wife, “Lula” (Ursula) and their two oldest children.  Eli’s father and mother, Anthony Corey Stone & Julia Aurelia Thompson (Stone) are also living in Syracuse (according to the 1880 census), but the children are with their older, married brother, Eli.   Just another puzzle piece to try and figure out, I guess.

Oh, and one more thing; Ursula’s parent’s birthplace is listed as Quebec, Canada.  I had assumed that they were born in Ontario, the same province where Ursula herself was born.  I might have something in my records that explains that, so we shall see what is up with that.
