I love finding a newspaper clipping and then trying to piece their life together. Here is what I found:

Samuel MacEachen Sr. who ran away from Beckwith

Samuel MacEachen, a native of Beckwith, Canada, who settled in North Scranton in the late 1870s, died in 1927 at the age of 82. The elder MacEachen had had wide experience as a gold prospector. He engaged in the drilling business there and before the turn of the century drilled hundreds of wells in Scranton. He was an associate of T. J. Foster, founder of the International Correspondence Schools, and was said to have been largely responsible for persuading Mr. Foster to transfer the headquarters of his mining publication. The Colliery Engineer, from the lower anthracite field to Scranton. The two men were at one time partners in the Standard Drilling Co. and son Sam MacEachen Jr. had been a salesman throughout most of his life.

Actually Doris seemed to settle down once she came home from a few months in the city. She ended up becoming a school principal. Her family was very influential in the city of Boston and she ended up marrying well–Mrs Doris Mason Grosse– yes well, a few times. She was married three times by the age of 45.
