Between 1883 - 1886
From the book The Sulouff & Suloff Family, by Nelson R. Sulouff,
page 54
Sometime after the birth of daughter Daisy in April 1883 and before the birth of son Irvin in October 1884, Ed & Hannah traveled to Eckhart, Indiana  with some intention of remaining there.  Ed was a carpenter skilled in the specialized work of barn building and it is believe that the promise of this type of work beckoned him westward. A piquant story has been preserved from that trip.  En-route to the train, Edmund and Hannah kindly helped another young couple take care of their restless children.  In gratitude, that couple gave Ed and Hannah a pen and pencil set to keep as a memento of the warm friendship that has sprung up between them on the train. Both couples knew that upon parting at their destination, they probably would never seen one another again.  That gold tipped pen and pencil set has been handed down, along with the touching story, via Edmund's oldest son Lucian and Lucian's son William, to William;s son, Rev. Nelson Sulouff (author of this account) who especially treasures the memory of a kindness performed by his great-grandparents, the comfort and joy they imparted as is symbolized by this honored gift from another couple on the train.  An inscription in faded ink on the lid of the box holding the pen reads "Oct 30 [or 20th?] 1872 John E. Sulouff & Wife from Frank H___hert Ind."  Someone used a ball point pen in an effort to improve the legibility of the year written on the box lid and apparently was unable to read correctly the faded original date.  The rather soft gold tip of he pen has the following inscription, "Eugene McGuire & Company New York 2"  It is believed Ed and Hannah took with them to Indiana only four children and that Sallie, then in her early teens, continued living in Cocolamus with her grandparents, Jacob & Lydia Sulouff.  Family tradition holds, if somewhat tenuously, that Irvin was their only child born in Indiana.  It is believe that the family moved back to Pennsylvania before the birth of Charles Clayton, who lived only one week.

It was probably the shift of railroad work from Juniata County to Mifflin County that led Ed (Family tradition says it was urging from his wife) to move his household to the Lewistown area.  Sometime after the death of Hannah in 1930, Edmund moved to live in Burnham with his youngest son, Edward.  Edmunds death came unexpectedly, resulting from an accident on an icy road of an automobile in which he was a passenger and for which is great-grandson Edward Stuck was driver.  Edmunds obituary reported 48 grandchildren, 52 great-grandchildren (of whom the present writer - Nelson R. Sulouff -  is one), and one great-great-grandchild.

From the book The Sulouff & Suloff Family, by Nelson R. Sulouff, page 56:
"Hannah had some difficulty adjusting to the new-fangled cars when they came out.  Her grandson, William Sulouff, of Northumberland, tells the story that as he was driving Hannah home in a borrowed Hupmobile, after a visit with her son 'Loosh' in Northumberland, William thought he was entertaining his grandmother and everyone else in the car by "soaring" over the crests of the "roller-coasters" along present Route 35.  Suddenly, the cries from his passengers of "Wheee" and "Whoopeeee" stopped.  He discovered to his dismay that Hannah's nausea in the back seat had brought the fun to an abrupt halt and also caused William considerable regret during the time it took to clean the car and get it "aired out".
