LIFSHITZ familly #belarus

My second great grandfather Benjamin was born in Mir, in what is now
Belarus in approximately 1864.. His NY death certificate lists his
parents as Zodock and Leah. The 1854 Mir revision list has the
following entry: Yelya son of Tsodyk Head of Household, Tsodyk son
of Yelya as his son, Lifa as his daughter in law. There is no one
else named Tsodyk in the revision list. Is it reasonable to assume
that Tsodyk and Lifa are Benjamin's parents? There is no other
family information so I can't trace any of Yelya's other children
listed in the revision list.
