Edward & Mary were married 16
Dec 1875 in Nebraska. He was the son of John & Susanna Bullock
Loney. They were in Nebraska until 1880, appear in California
in 1900, and must have moved to Oregon shortly thereafter. The
Steinbaughs appear to have moved from Nebraska to California
about 1876, then to Oregon shortly after the 1900 census.

OLDEST MAN IN OREGON
Edward Loney, of Wilsonville, Born October 28, 1804
Wilsonville, Or., April 9.--The friends of Edward
Loney, who is a farmer at this place, assert that he is the
oldest man living in Oregon, being 98 years old. He was born in
Gilford County, N. C., October 24, 1804, and came to
Wilsonville, where he has a farm of 80 acres, about 20 years
ago. He has been three times married, but all his wives are
dead. His oldest son, aged about 70, lives in Nebraska, and one
son and a daughter live in Oregon.
Two years ago Mr. Loney fell off a landing while
leaving a steamer at Oregon City, and was so severely injured
that he has not been able to walk since. Still, Mr. Loney enjoys
fairly good health, and reads with the aid of a magnifying
glass. He is well liked in the community.
