EDDY, REGA posted by Luk BAUS on Sunday, July 6, 1997

EDDY - Hi, my name is Luk Baus from Belgium. One of my colleagues recently discoverd that an Americn soldier officially witnessed his birth in 1946. Unfortunately, my colleague isn't connected to the Internet, so he asked me to make this search on his behalf. The name of the witness is Clarence (first name) EDDY (surname). According to the birth certificate, he was 31 years old in 1946, and he lived in Balmont, Ohio. We discovered already that Balmont doesn't exist, so we think in might be Belmont. My colleague would like to meet with this witness, be it be inviting him over here in Belgium or by meeting him in the US. Could you please provide us with all details about this person (is he still alive, does he still live in Belmont, where did he move to and when ?, ...). Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Looking for information regarding descendents of Thomas Coleman MORROW, b Apr 6, 1850, Woodsfield, Monroe County, Ohio Family Bible records his death Jan 22, 1904 or 1907 (handwriting unclear), no place indicated. Bible records shows family line: "Daughter Ann married Alonzo HICKS" "Daughter Lillian Hicks KILLE (sp?)" then "Daughter (Barnesville, Ohio)" Also seeking record of descendents of John Cromwell MORROW, b Woodsfield, Oct 12, 1839, m. Louise PHILBRICK (sp?), Nov 1870, no place. His death shown as Feb 3, 1896; also no place. Parents, two brothers, and sister left Ohio for Wisconsin, about 1869. These brothers were believed to have stayed in Ohio, but they do not appear in Monroe County census records. Since Bible record suggests one had descendent who lived in Barnesville, it seems plausible that the brothers moved to/lived in Belmont County after their family left. I have been unable to view or get lookup asistance for Belmont County census records, 1870 and later. Thanks, Duncan Morrow
