[On the digital image the page appears to be stamped as 375B. The upper left corner of the page is folded over exposing the letter "B" of the page behind it on page 374B. If you turn to the previous page, 375C, the upper right corner reveals the "D" of the folded page corner (and conceals the letter "C" on that page).]
From the census page, the enumeration date was 19 June 1880 and the enumerator was Robt. Hamson. The family members listed reflect who was present on 1 June 1880 according to the 1880 enumeration instructions.
This enumerator recorded names in column 3 using the order: last name, middle initial, first name. For example, William C. Sharp is recorded as "Sharp C. William" and William J. Sharp is recorded as " Sharp J. William".
The 1880 U.S. census column 8 gives the relationship of each member of the household to the head of household. The son William J. and daughter Mary, who were missing from the 1870 census, are now present.
In column 26, the places of birth of the mother of the grandson Charles and grand-daughter Effa are Tennessee and Kentucky respectively. If Laura is the mother of these children, then the expected mother's birthplace for both would be Illinois. This may be an entry error or it may indicate other mothers for these children.
