      You must have seen the 1900 census,
      because you give month-of-birth -

      > 1900 Rome Ward 1, Oneida, New York
      > Burns, Robert/51:MI:MI:MI, Matelda J/51:NY:NY:NY,
      > - married 13 years, 1 child
      > - (Robert's occupation) Harness Maker
      > (), Floyd/13:MI:MI:NY

      And here's Floyd's DoB -
      World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
      Name: Floyd Burns
      County: Oneida
      State: New York
      Birthplace: Michigan;United States of America
      Birth Date: 15 Jan 1888
      Race: Caucasian (White)
      FHL Roll Number: 1818603
      Married, wife + child

      For 1880 (at Ancestry.com), I entered the query
      ROBERT BURN* born MICHIGAN 1849+/-5
      and was surprised to get only one reasonable hit -
      *and* he is a Harness Maker! -
      (the only other hit was Robert BURNETT b.ca.1845) -

      1880 Lyons, Ionia, Michigan
      Burns, Alice, 60 widow born PA:PA:PA
      Robert, son 31 widower Harness Maker born MI:PA:PA

      This one is in the right town, right age -
      1870 Lyons, Ionia, Michigan
      Burnes, Robert, 22 Butcher born Michigan
      (), Esther, 20 born Alabama
      NOTE: This is after the civil war - did they meet in wartime?
      Or did Esther travel north to Michigan first?

      And here's a Robert Burns with a mother Alice -
      1860 Lyons, Ionia, MI (all children born MI)
      Burns, James W/43:PA/butcher, Alice/42:PA,
      (), Margaret A/16, James H/14, Robert/12, Hannah A/9,
      (), Charlotte E/8, Marian J/6

      1850 Lyons, Ionia, Michigan
      Burns, James/33:PA/farmer, Allace/30:PA,
      (), Alferd/12:PA, Mary/10:NY, Margaret/8:MI,
      (), James/6:MI, Robert/4:MI, Allace M/1:MI
