NOTE: Later census records for husband of Leah Bendle indicate parents were from NY, and that Leah's husband was also from NY. But 1920 lists parents as from MI. This 1870 Census record should almost certainly be for son of GW & Eliza living in home of his merchant employer. And 1880 Census shows a good match, also a retailer, but then living in AZ.
