In 1880 John Reso, 5, lived in Hendricks, Mackinaw, Michigan. There is no 1890 Census, and like you I cannot find him on the 1900 census. Red Cliff is an Ojibwe/Chippewa reservation 2 miles from Bayfield, Wisconsin established by the Treaty of 1854. The Band was given common land, and each family received an individual allotment of land, which they could sell, and many did. Caucasians who purchased an allotment were tallied in the Bayfield Census. Ojibwe were tallied in the "U.S., Indian Census Rolls, 1885-1940" in Ancestry. The Band still maintains a roster of members of the Band, which might be of help to you. The Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa maintains their website at
