Dear Ms. Riley,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The 1880 census was the first enumeration to record the street name and house number. Even though space was provided on the census page, the enumerator did not always record it.
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Enumeration District Descriptions and Enumeration District and Related Maps in the records of the Bureau of the Census Records (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Adams County, Mississippi (Enumeration District 56). For more information about these series, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Cartographic (RDSC) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSC. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience as we balance mission-critical work and the safety of our staff during the pandemic. Please check NARA’s web page about COVID-19 updates for the latest information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Thank you for your feedback, Josette, however I am not sure how to followthrough with your recommendation. Can you share with me what I'm suppose to do when I get to the National Archives and Catalog U.S.NARA. Is there a pamplet available with instructions for this website? I appreciate any help you can give regarding this matter. Iria Rilley

Also I checked city 1870-1890s tax rolls and records and there was not a Lucy or Washington recorded with any property paying tax. This also shows address. I would assume if he was farming that he rented or was boarding and helping to farm other families land.
I know this doesn't help because Washington Hooker was already widowed but it shows him in the 1912 Directory
