[Cyrus & Celina's children]
Naphalian Lyon 20 " " Teacher " Ga
"Naphalian" appears to be Napoleon Lafayette, who seems to have gotten himself enumerated twice (his brother, Jerome, is also in Clarke County).  There's no obvious genealogical connection between Cyrus & Celina (JONES) McCURDY and our subjects.  (This enumerator got carried away with ditto marks.)

The visitation numbers were misplaced because Jeremiah belongs in the previous household, that of Mary's son, Jerome B. LYONJeremiah D. OUTLAW is his stepson.

7.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Mary, Nathaniel, or Lafayette.  Jerome is still living in Wilcox County.
