By 1880, my great-grandfather, Francis Maloney, had died; his wife, Sarah Weed, had remarried and was living in Michigan; my grandfather, Frederick Maloney, was also in Michigan; and my 2nd great-grandmother, Ellen Kearney Maloney, and her family were in Rochester, NY.
Let's first look at the census record for Ellen Maloney who was then living at 105 Allen Street in Rochester (line 32). Ellen Maloney was listed as "head" of household. Edward is listed as a telegraph operator and Thomas is listed as a clerk.

My great-grandfather's brother, Michael Maloney, and his wife, Margaret were living at 56 Marshall Street in Rochester. Michael's occupation is listed as "fancy goods." The Rochester City Directory for 1880 lists his "fancy goods" shop at 94 State Street.

The other Maloney - my grandfather Frederick - listed in the 1880 Federal Census for Leoni Township, Jackson Co., MI. with his mother, Sarah Weed Maloney Hawkins, his step-father, John Hawkins, and his sisters, Frances and Nelly. The census sheet is difficult to read but the entry at at line 35. For my grandfather, it is difficult to see in his middle initial is a "G" or an "H."
