Apparently, Emma's death certificate says she was born 13 Sep 1871, but that record is less likely to be correct than the 1900 census, which gives her birthyear as 1869.

2.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  not found.  John obviously believed he came to America in 1869 (see 1900 census), but I don't find him or his family in the 1870 census, so secondary sources giving an immigration year as 1873 appear correct.

3.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  John DREWS (æ 14, b. Prussia) is living in Fountain City, Buffalo Co., WI (p. 303C), with his parents, Johann DREWS (æ 45, b. Prussia) and wife Dorothea (æ 44, b. Prussia).

The number in Column 12 can't be larger than the number in Column 11, so the enumerator seems to have them switched.

The head of household has to be Mrs. John DREWS (the enumerator at least got the gender right).  Florence and Emma are starting to shave years off their age.
