In the Pike County Census of 1880 the household of Joseph Looney is listed as follows:


By the Census of 1900 Miles and Dorah have apparently moved into households of their own and Joseph's household now consist of:

Column 11 of this Census recorded ‘Mother of how many children?’ and column 12 recorded the ‘Number of these children living.’   It appears that Elizabeth reported giving birth to 11 children, but that only 5 were still living at the time of the census.
