He was 22 years old in 1880 which would make his birth year around 1858. He lived in Cincinnati, Ohio at the time with his wife Clara M. He was an Upholsterer and she was a House Keeper.

Edward and Clara produced four children: Emma W., Edward, Albert Cornelius, and William T.

They were divorced by 1890 though, as that is when Clara re-married. 


I don’t yet know when Edward died or where he was buried.

Obviously, I have very little information for Edward.  But I wanted to post what I do have because if anybody out there knows more and can refer me to good sources, it would help keep his story alive.  As always, I’ll update this post as I find additional information for this ancestor.

Take care and hug your loved ones!
