Columns Out of Order in 1880 at Family Search

I realize it is not a big deal, but the columns as displayed in the 1880 census results on FamilySearch are in a different order from the actual census.
I was going to use this transcription as a basis for one in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues, but I think I'll just start from scratch as I want the columns in the newsletter to be in the correct order. The transcribed data is not wrong, just that the column order is different in the original census.
Oh, and in this case the relationship listed for Henry J. Fecht is not "Other." Readers of the newsletter will find out what's likely up with Henry.
