United States of America / Re: Florida death in late 1990's

The obituaries might not be accurate.  My grandmother is listed in a sibling's obituary 9 years after she actually died.  She had a lot of siblings, so I guess the surviving children hadn't really kept track of who was still around.

Also, databases like the US Public Records gets its info from, among other places, mailing lists.  I have people listed on there well after their date of death.

American-based companies typically describe things in American terms.  I don't know why anyone would expect them to do otherwise.

It looks like she died in Windham Co., Vermont, not New Hampshire, but her usual residence was No. Walpole, New Hampshire. 

It looks like there are obituaries for Robert and Rachel in the Pittsburgh papers.,4098&p_place=PA

I don't have a full subscription, but you can see some of the search result, play around with the search terms, and see more of the obituary by clicking on the little black arrows.  It appears that they had a sister named Ethel M. Bevins.  This looks like her:

Marriage of Ethel Marshall & Walter Bevins -

I don't know if you've seen these, but this death record for Frederick has him listed as married, but no wife's name is on there -

This coroner's report details how he died due to an accident at the saw mill (and the details are a bit gory) -

Looks like Frederick's death made the Cleveland newspaper -  Maybe Eunice heard through the grapevine.

I think this might be the marriage record for Frederick and Mary -  It doesn't specify whether or not he was married before.

There is an index entry about the pension applications regarding Frederick Moss -  It's a bit hard to read, but it looks like Frederick filed as an "invalid" on 14 Jan. 1870 and Eunice filed as a widow in New York on 26 Jan. 1894, which would have been after the death you mentioned.  It looks like Mary filed in Ohio on 19 Jun. 1893, so perhaps that was the unsuccessful attempt.
