Moses b. 1838 in VT and married Susan J. (Weaver?) who was born 1848 KY. I was unable to locate Moses again in any census until 1870 when he at age 32 and Susan at age 22 appear married in Rice county, KS. Her mother is also in the HH (Ann Weaver) age 47 b. KY. In 1875 Moses and Susan [S J] have relocated to Lakin, Barton County in Kansas where it says Moses [M S] came to Kansas from Colorado. He did serve in the Civil War out of Colorado and was there in 1864. I could not locate him again until I found a newspaper clipping [OREGONIAN - 2 Nov 1887] that announces the divorce procedings between Moses and Susan.In 1890 Moses filed for a Civil War pension in the state of Oregon [having served in Colorado] and no wife is listed. Mrs S. J Strew apprears in the Portland city Polk Directories for 1887 taking in lodgings. She last appears in 1889 in Tacoma, WA. Moses Strew is buried in Croxton Pioneer Memorial Park in Grants Pass, Josephine County, Oregon but there are no dates.There is no evidence susan is buried with him. Could anyone living in that area possibly find out when he died? I would greatly appreciate any further information. I am also looking for any further information on his wife Susan who may have died in Tacoma, Washington sometime after 1889. {I lament the loss of the 1890 census!}
