    I am trying to find my great grandfather after the 1880 census

      I am trying to find additional information about my great great grandfather.  I know that he was in Alabama (I assume he was enslave) prior to the Civil War, and may have been born in Virginia (or North Carolina).  I am able to locate him in the Freedman's hospital in Mississippi in 1866, on the tax rolls in 1866, on a Freedmen's contract in 1866, in the 1870 census, his 1870 marriage registry (all of these in Mississippi), an in the 1880 census in Tennessee.  After that, I cannot find any records about him.  No death or burial records for him or his wife.  These would help me verify his year of death, and perhaps his place of birth.
