Luen Jr. (son, 11/12)
Dexter, James L (Father in Law, age 79, widowed, married 30 years.)

Nearby households, Edgar Dexter and sisters, Betsy Dexter widow, 88, Clara Dexter, widow.

I am very puzzled by this census, because Luen's father in law was William J. Barker. But the daughter is named Ruth Dexter Johnson. Could there have been two Luen's of almost the same age, both marrying Lillian's of almost the same age? There are some age discrepancies, but the Findagrave records seem to connect this Mattapoisett family to Lillian Barker.

I see all these Dexters, buried in Pine Island Cemetery also. They don't see to be directly related to Luen. Maybe through his mother Maria Cross?
