Image Source: Year: 1880; Census Place: Hawkinsville, Pulaski, Georgia; Roll: T9_162; Family History Film: 1254162; Page: 302D; Enumeration District: 54; Image: 0027.

Listed with wife Gracey 21 and daughter Louisa 3.

There is a Collier family living next door - and one member living with them.

Looking at 1870 - I find this family:

COLLIER, ANDERSON (1870 U.S. Census)
Georgia , PULASKI, HAWKINSVILLE P O, Age 38, Male, Race: Black, Born: GA
Series: M593 Roll: 170 Page: 372

They have a 12 year old daughter Grace. My guess is it's Gracey.

Hope this helps,

Denise
