1870 Census on Family Search-Location Searches

Maybe I'm just really obtuse, but if it is there I am overlooking it.

Is there a way on the 1870 census at FamilySearch to search for John Smiths in a specific county?

Not only is there no way to search by county, but if you enter a county in the search box, you will not find the person you seek! I'm surprised at this. Most FamilySearch databases are really good, but this one is not very useful. You have to open each record to see which county you have found.

Thanks for posting. I have been frustated too at the real inability to perform even moderately sophisticated searches.
