Susan shaved her age in later censuses. The 1900 shows her living in Mattoon, Coles Co., IL as a boarder. She's 22 & (supposedly) born Dec 1877. Per the 1900 census that Carol gave you, that's where Robert lived. Also, on the marriage info Carol gave you, she's 24 & it shows she was born in Fancher, IL. Fancher is in Shelby County.
Things to consider:
It's possible she's Ida M. below & that her parents changed her name or she changed her name or she was adopted.
The below Charles & John L. are buried in Dodge Grove cemetery, as is Ellen. (Other family members buried in Dodge Grove also)
Findagrave shows this for where they're buried.....
