Cyrus's trip West

Just a little 'afterward' about what Cyrus (son of Thomas PA) did with the rest of his life (according to the information I have):

After Martha passed away in 1859, Cyrus packed up and headed west. When he arrived in Walla Walla, Washington, Cyrus re-married in 1860 to Christa Ann (or Christina) Wilcoxson. It was in Walla Walla that Laura was born in 1861. Cyrus died 12-5-1897 in Walla Walla. His son Daniel (mother: Martha Restine) also moved to Washington, but chose to live in Dayton rather than Walla Walla. Daniel was married to Susan Ann Reed (b 1855 Indiana), and from their union came Sylvia Angeline (b 1891 Dayton or Peola, d 1951 Dayton), my great-grandmother. Sylvia married, but later divorced, Roy Leighton Scoggin. They had several children, including my grandmother.

Maybe this will be of interest to somebody.
