Census Sunday: Greats, Part 4

Since the 1890 US census was largely lost, I don't have the records of my only two living great-grandparents in that census.  But, I do know where they were in 1890.  Gideon Gottlieb Berger was about five and living with his family at 618 South Olive St. in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California (the family had moved there in 1888 from Indiana and left for Oakland in 1891).  My other living great, Elmer John Shinn, was about thirteen and living on the family farm in San Joaquin Co., California.  Elmer is also the only great who appears in the 1880 census:

Elmer was two at the time of the census and was living with his parents, siblings and maternal grandfather on the family farm (which is enumerated in Alabama Township).  Nearby is Elmer's maternal aunt and her family (the Russells).
