Scott, Sumner is a township in Webster County, Iowa. I did find Jacob in the 1880 census
living there with Ashfords. It appears from what I see on Ancestry.com
that Jacob moved to
Springfield, Illinois later (apparently after moving to Nebraska) and died at Springfield.
According to the online Springfield city directories, he lived there several years.
I searched for other McCloughans in Webster County but did not find any (even after trying
other spelling possibilities). If you don't have Ancestry.com
, you may want to get
someone to search for them on Ancestry for you. There are some family trees that you will
want to look at if you haven't. I don't know whether you still have relatives in
Springfield, Illinois, but that would be something to check (again if you haven't
already). Good luck.

My g-Grandfather was in the 1880 census living with a family named of Ashford. He was 17
year old. The census said he was a servant. He must have traveled with that family to
Nebraska. I don't know if any of his family lived in Sumner Co. at that time? His name
was Jacob C. McCloughan
Thanks for any Help.
