|Marriage||11 June 1854||Suzanna Crotty married Darius Eastman, who was 23 years old, son of Amos Eastman the Younger and Ruby Brockway,
11 June 1854. This was a first marriage for both. This marriage MAY
have occurred about June 1854. Since Darius shows on the 1860 census as
29 years old, and this is consistent with other information, he would
have been about 24 when he married Susan Crotty. Son Frank is 5 on the
|1860||Find 1860 There are no Crotty families in Wayne in 1860.

LaFayette ciounty, Wisconsin where Darius is a 39 year old farmer with
$3000 of real estate and $2000 of personal property, born in Ohio. Susan is 33 and born in Ohio.
There is a daughter Mary that is 17 who was born in Illinois. This Mary
could be Darius sister rather than his daughter. (This Mary DOES NOT
show on the 1860 census with Darius and she would have been bca 1853
and therefore about 7 years old. ) Frank is 15, Hellen is 11, Alva is
9, Ruben , listed as MALE, (this is Ruby) is 2 and there are twins
Darius and Dwight who are 7. They are listed AFTER Ruby.7,8
|Sept 1870||Suzanna Crotty and Darius Eastman

settled on the amount for alimony.9
|1871||Family lore has it that "She went to live in Lena, Ill". BUT in 1880 she is in Kansas.

WILD, WEIRD, WATERY WASTE.
The Windows of Heaven Open Over Kinsley.
Two Hours of Flood, Wind, Flying Timbers, Stovepipes, Chimneys, Chicken Coops, Thunder and Lightning.
...the house occupied by Mrs. Eastman, in the east part of town, was seriously damaged, the kitchen entirely demolished, and in her attempt to flee to the residence of Judge Davis for safety, the lady would have perished had assistance not reached her promptly.
|Cen1880||1880|| Suzanna Crotty shows in the household of Hiram R Eastman
on the 1880 census of Kinsley township, Edwards county, Kansas taken
1880, Hiram MAY appear on this census as 21 years old, born in
Wisconsin, father born in Canada and mother born in Ohio. He is married
to a Helen Eastman, 21 years old, born in Wisconsin and both parents
born in Ohio. HER
mother is Susan C. Eastman, divorced. Susan was born in Ohio, father
born in Ohio and mother born in Virginia. Susan is 43 years old.
Darius Eastman, son of Susan, is 17 years old, born in Wisconsin.
Darius is a laborer. This Susan C. Eastman is the ex-wife of Darius Eastman.
The age of Susan and the age of her son is correct for what we know. We
suspect that Hellen is also a daughter of Darius and Susan Crotty.
|1885||Suzanne Crotty appears as S. C. Eastman on the 1885 Kansas census. She is a dressmaker, born in Ohio, 47 years old,
claims that she is widowed which is NOT true. She came to Kansas from
Illinois. Son Frank is 29 years old and son Dwight is 22, both are
painters and born in Wisconsin.10
|1885||Find 1885 There is a family of Morris Crotty, 2
males and 1 female in Argyle, Lafayette, WI. Could be her family (in
1885). Suzanna is living in Kansas at this time and is on the Kansas
census in 1885.11

She is a 61 year old widow. She was married one time and had 5 children only 3 of whom are living.(Actually, we believe that she had 6 children.) She was born in April of 1839 in Ohio. This age does NOT agree with the age that she gives on other census' . Father born in Ohio, mother born in Virginia. Son Frank is a 45 year old widower, born in Wisconsin in April of 1855. He is employed as a painter. His son Edward E is 7 years old, born in California April 1893, mother born in Kentucky.|
