Joel D. Hoy widower in 1873.
Marriage 2 (Elizabeth Huffman Eaton widowed in 1873) 1874-79 & widowed from J.D. Hoy in 1912 in Tx.
Probably went from Tx. to Ok. to live with younger son Thomas Jefferson (my ggf) near Mt. View, Kiowa Co. Ok.
I have a photo of her, her son, John and his wife, Matilda Ada (went by Ada), 2 of their children and Aunt
"Addy" (Adeline) which was taken in 1892 in Lampassas Co. and she looked well. So, I would say things were pretty equal and I, for one, am glad, being 12 years older than Susan, that she was not "too old" to bear children.
Anyway, I had not been able to find anything about her until I found the messages on the board, so I thank you
all for the information. I had heard that she may have married a J.D. Hoy, but could not find verification and
maybe now I can. Also, thank you for her parents names, as I didn't know them either.
