Gilbert Bahn, Wordens Past, Vol XIX, No 3, Nov 1998, p. 1496: Marriage at Adams, MA, 16 Mar 1788. Widow, Tabytha Worden, is at Brutus in the 1820 census. Died intestate. Estate was divided into ten shares in settlement. One share was allocated to his creditors and one, of course, to Tabytha. The remaining eight demonstrate that there were then eight living children. These were Lydia, Robert, Ripha, Eliza, Walter, Pardon, Mercy, and Orinda. . . . Tabatha and Robert are not to be found in censuses after 1820.

1955 in city directory of Mobile, Alabama, with Rose, electrician at A.F.B. 806 Kirby.

In his late teens, Merle (Schuerman) Duston left home not telling his family where he was going. He wound up in Detroit where he became an expert in the new field of radio. He wrote several books popularizing radio and encouraging people to build their own sets. These included Radio Theory Simplified in two editions, the first in 1924, Duston's A.C. Radio Manual, 1928, and Radio Construction for the Amateur. The books occasionally come up for sale on online used book sites. Radio Theory Simplified is found in many local libraries. He also wrote a novel, The Wind in Our Hands, 1966. His work is featured on websites on ancient radios, including

In the late 1940s or early 1950s, his son Eldon Duston's wife, Elva, became curious about her husband's origins. Her father-in-law's background was a mystery. Eldon and Elva lived in Colorado Springs and when they traveled Elva would look up Dustons in the local phone directory. On a trip to Denver she called several Dustons in the phone directory. By chance, Merle's neice, Wilma Shaffer (Nell's daughter) had married a Duston and Elva called their number. At first, she got somebody at the number (perhaps Wilma's husband) who did not know what Elva was talking about. Apparently, Elva did not check that number off her list and called back, this time reaching Wilma. Wilma recalled hearing about the long lost brother from her family (perhaps she knew his name) and made the connection. In this way, Merle was reunited with his family. I remember as a young teenager witnessing (perhaps I only heard about it from my father) the joyful and tearful reunion of Merle with his mother and siblings in Denver. Since his mother, Lillian, died in August 1951 all of this must have happened before that.
