Mack Family--AFRICA

On the Mack family,

I was doing some research on Ancestry, and came across:

Franklia Back, female, 1760, reporting in the 1870 census, 110 years old, born Africa. She is actually living in the same county as WInnie Mack, 1825 SC, and Daniel Mack, 1815, SC.

In the 1870 Census, there are four Mack individuals reporting birth in Africa in addition to Frankia:
Jos, Concordia LA, b. 1790 AFRICA
Ira, Brazoria TX, 1819 AFRICA
Samuel, same place, 1797 AFRICA
Quins, same place but different precinct, 1820 AFRICA

So, I went to the 1880 census. For some reason they don't have 'Africa' as a choice for F/M birth place, so I used keyword Africa and surnam Mack. Here's what came up (there's 22 individuals with Africa somehow included in birth information, whether they were born there, or a parent was. So, I'm just going to paste in the two who reported being born in AFR themselves, and then just the SC ones:
