Missing STARRY members - know what happened to them?

Children of Jabez Starry (1831-1910) and Eleanor Simpson (1834-1884). Missing at least four. Can you help find what happened to them?

Orrin Starry, born 1852 and died after 1880. He is shown single and living with his parents in 1880 census Jackson township but disappears in the 1885 and 1895 census and no where to be found in 1900.

Alexander Starry, twin brother to Matthais born 1858. Was married to Sarah Jane Voorhies and last child born 1891. Wife is buried at Center Cemetery but where is he?

John Starry born 1861, moved to Cedar County and last seen in the Red Oak area 1910 but disappears after that. No where to be found in 1920 census. He also never married. Any idea where he went or did he die in the 1910's in Cedar County?

Amanda Starry born 1865, married 1883 to George Washington Coleman. She was the first of at least four wives. He remarried 1893 but can't find her. I am sure she remarried but nothing shows up in the marriage books up to 1898.


Alexander Starry (father to Jabez) had a child named Lucinda born 1832 and died 1853 buried at Center Cemetery. Any full dates on her? And their son Alexander jr. 1846-1846 also buried at Center.
