John SIAS
Elizabeth CHENEY
Husband:  John SIAS
Birth:  16 Jan 1785, Loudon, Rockingham [now Merrimack] Co., NH
Death:  15 Jul 1864, Danville, Caledonia Co., VT
Father:  Capt. Benjamin SIAS
Mother:  Abigail MOORE

If John died in Danville in 1864, he should have been there at least in the 1860 census, but I don't find him, there or anywhere else, in 1840, 1850, or 1860.  But I do find a person who appears to be his childless widow in the 1840, 1850, and 1860 censuses.  I wonder if "1864" isn't a typo.

Marriage:
Wife:  Elizabeth "Betsey" CHENEY
Birth:  1785/6, ME
Children:
said to be childless
