Mary J. AVERY and Elbridge MORREL were married on 23 March 1853 in Schuyler County, Illinois.37 Elbridge MORREL, son of Cyrus Wilson MORREL and Mary WORLEY, was born in 1834 in Ohio.11

1860 Census gives his name as "Abbridge Morrell". They were in Woodstock Twp, Schuyler Co. I cannot find the family after 1860.

Can this be the same person?
There is an Elbridge Morrel who served in the Union Army from Missouri, Co. I, 1st Engineers Regt., Missouri Volunteers. He enlisted as a Private, but became Artificer. [skilled mechanic in the military]

As unusual as the name seems to be, there was another Elbridge Gary Morrell, who married a Margaret Reid - he was born 1812 in Maine and may have been an uncle to this Elbridge. Elbridge G. also had a son of the same name, born 1858 in Pike Co, IL.

There is an online database that says Elbridge married a second time to Mahala Green, 21 Jul 1881.
