John Williams married Rebecca Straub Starr

I am looking for information regarding John Williams who married Rebecca Straub Starr. I believe they were married after 1870 and he died before 1880.

Here is what I have gleaned from Census records:

In 1860, Rebecca Straub is shown married to Isaac Starr. There were three children listed for this family, Edwin (1856), Elizabeth (1858), and Charles (1860).

In 1870, Rebecca Straub is shown living with her brother Jacob. No children from the marriage to Isaac are residing there; however, I know that at least Elizabeth Starr survived to adulthood.

In 1880, Rebecca Williams in listed as a widow with Elizabeth 'Williams' (1859), Catie (1863), John (1874), David (1876), and Jennie (1879).

I suspect John Williams would have died somewhere around 1878 - 1879.

There is a cemetery record for Rebecca Starr Williams in Schuylkill County indicating she was the wife of Isaac Starr and Jno Williams; however, neither husband is buried at the same location. Cemetery records indicate Rebecca Straub died 14 May 1897.

If anyone has any information regarding John Williams' birth, military service, marriages, and death, I would be interested in hearing from you.

Thank you in advance.
