Hi June,

I found this family in the 1880 Census in Kansas. If you'd like this Census info which includes a more comprehensive list of Isaac and Susan's children, I can send it to you.

A May Evans was living in Lawrence Ward, Douglas Co., Kansas in 1895.
E K Evans, b. IL, 21 yrs old, ice dealer.
May, wife, b. IL, 17. Source: Kansas State Census Collection 1855-1925. That's all I found for this couple.

In 1900 John, Clara and boys Patterson were living in Lawrence Ward, Douglas Co., Kansas.
John T. Patterson, b. KY May 1864, marr 4 yrs, laborer.
Clara B., wife, b. April 1874, IL.
Claud, b. KS Nov 1896.
John, b. KS Oct 1898. That's all I found for this family.

I also found a Walter Edward Hood born 22 Sept. 1916 Clallam Co. Father=Guy E. Hood, Mother=Martha Bower. Source: Washington Birth Index 1907-19,

It's odd that I can't find death info for the family members that moved to Oregon.

There is a volunteer at Random Acts Genealogical Kindness who does public record lookups. Go to, read guidelines, choose Benton Co and choose Lisa. I'd ask her to look up Susan Sturges first.

Here are some deaths that are possibilities that you can check out yourself.
A Harvey Hood died 5 June 1931, Multnomah Co. per death cert 178. Source: Oregon Death Index 1903-98,

A Walter Hood died 19 March 1926, Portland OR per death cert #775. Source: same as above.

A Walter E. Hood, Spouse=Ellen, died 24 March 1959, Multnomah Co per death cert #3804. Source: same as above.

You can request free or nearly free copies from This time enter Multnomah for the county.

A Harvey Hood, Spouse=Nora died 13 May 1937, Yamhill Co per death cert #135. Source: same as above.

There is a RAOGK volunteer in Yamhill Co. too. Successful Searching!
