My maternal gg-grandparents are also Jesse and Elizabeth J. Huffman Eaton.
Jesse b: 6 Feb 1827 d: 10 Mar 1873 age 46 Denison, Grayson Co., Tx.
Elizabeth b: 18 Apr 1829 d: 3 Nov 1917 age 88 Ok.
Marriage: 28 May 1849* His age 22 Her age 20
[*EATON, Jess & Elizabeth HOFFMAN - *ANDERSON COUNTY MARRIAGES from Courthouse]
Children were: John Daniel, 1861; Matilda Ada, abt 1862; Thomas Jefferson, 1863; Laura Elizabeth, 1865; Adeline poss. 1848; and possibly W.H. John; Ermaline (maybe twin of "Addy";and Malinda; birth dates unknown. Total=5-8

Joel D. Hoy b: 1827-29 per forum messages d: 1912 Tx. age 83-85
Susan Catherine Prestar b: abt 1841 d: 1873 Tx. age 32
Marriage : unknown, prob. bef 1858 His age 29-31 Her age abt 17
Children were: Maria T, 1858; Joel D,Jr, 1859; Selinda C, 1861; and Asa T, 1864. Total=4

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.
