1880 Census-Buffalo Bill Cody
The 1880 census finds Buffalo Bill Cody living in North Platte, Nebraska with his wife and family. Not many in 1880 are listed as Actors and Cattlemen, but Cody was in the complete enumeration.
Also in the Cody household are his sister and his neice--remember if you can't find your ancestor or relative in a census always consider looking in the households of other family members.
You can search for your own ancestor in the 1880 census. Of course your relative probably was not a cattleman and an actor--unless you are related to Buffalo Bill Cody.
