  General Notes:

In the census of 1850 for Lowell, Middlesex County, MA he is living as a pauper in the Almshouse in Lowell, MA. He is age 54.
May have married Zilpah B. Caswell in Lowell, Ma on 13 Nov 1836.
Sue Phaneuf thinks he is either s/o Jacob and Betsey Burbank or Elijah and Mary Jewell- I feel Elijah could well be his father based on the fact that Elijah's son Elijah settled in Lowell MA. but Elijah's marriage to Mary Jewell did not take place until 1801 and Elijah would have been only 17..not probable father

census 1860 Lowell Ward 4, Middlesex County MA -still in Alms House
Richard Straw born c1798

There is an Olive Straw (states she is single) who is the probable second wife of Elijah Straw Jr living in Lowell Ward 4, Middlesex County, MA in 1860; age 35 and born c1825 in Maine

Richard married Zilpah B. Caswell on 13 Nov 1836 in Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. (Zilpah B. Caswell was born before 1820.)
