I was searching for a listing of my 3x great-grandfather, Azro Daniel Freeman, where I found not only him, but a few of his children living in homes they owned on the same enumeration page. I found the Freemans living in Victor, Osborne County, Kansas. Here is a county map I found, courtesy of the US Gen Website.
