I am hoping someone can help me with the connection between Luke Eastman and Sarah Blodgett.
Luke Eastman is listed twice in the 1880 census - is this two separate individuals? or same person in two places in 1880?:
1) 1880 United States Federal Census Name: Luke Eastman Home in 1880: Greensboro, Orleans, Vermont Age: 63 Estimated birth year: abt 1817 Birthplace: Vermont Relation to head-of-household: Something other than a direct relationship (Other) Father's birthplace: Massachusetts Mother's birthplace: New Hampshire Occupation: Farmer Marital Status: Married Race: White Gender: Male Household Members: Name Age Edward L.

I would like to know what happened to the Luke Eastman that was in Greenboro, VT, with Sarah Smalley. He is listed with a Philip Eastman in the 1870 VT census:
1870 United States Federal Census - Greensboro, VT Enumerated Aug. 10, 1870) READ: (City, County, State) Estimated birth year Birthplace Race Gender Eastman, Philip, age 47, farmer, b. VT Eastman, Laura, 49, b. VT Eastman, Luke, age 53, farm laborer, b. VT Leland, William, age 12, at home, b. VT Badger, Cynthia, age 84, b. VNH (Could Philip and Luke be brothers/cousins--?) --Dustin Eastman age 37 b. VT, and wife?, Orissa Eastman age 37 born VT, are also on this same census page.-- Note: according to an online tree I found with Dustin listed, it gives this source: "History of the Sinclair Family in Europe and America for Eleven Hundred Years", By Leonard Allison Morrison. Originally published in 1896".
Philip & Laura Eastman are in the 1860 census at Greensboro, VT
Sarah Smalley was widow of Ezra Smalley (Ezra of Brookfield, VT, died 1870).
Sarah Smalley (nee Blodgett) was daughter of Heman Blodgett and Sabrine Durkee, b. Sept. 6, 1829 at Warren, VT.
There is a Sarah Eastman listed in the 1900 Census, living at Compton?, Grafton Co., NH. Her son, Edward Smalley, is living with her. She is listed as a widow.
Did Sarah Smalley (nee Blodgett) marry Luke Eastman? Where and when (it had to be after 1880 and before 1900).
I could not find a death record for Sarah (Blodgett) Eastman in NH. I have a date of death for her of May 6, 1906.
