I am looking for information about the C. W. Dewey family after 1880. I cannot find the children in later census. These Deweys may be key to my brickwall, Eli Easterwood.
1850 census, Dist. 69, Cleves, Hamilton County, Ohio Charles W. Dewey, M, 29, Shoemaker, Ohio Sarah J. Dewey, F, 17,, Ohio Lavina (?), F, 9/12,, Ohio Elizabeth Bunce, F, 17,, Ohio
I believe this Elizabeth Bunce married Isaac Trader of Ohio county, Indiana, in Boone Co. Ky, in 1854. Can anyone verify this? What was her relationship with this Dewey family? Does anyone have info on Charles or Sarah Dewey?
Charles (C W) Dewey, b. Ohio, and wife Sarah J., b. Ohio, 1860 census, Boone Co, KY. 1870 census Ohio Co, Indiana. Children: William, Daniel, Mary, Henry, Charles.
He signed my gggrandmother's (Mary Ann Trader Easterwood) Civil War pension affidavit. Looking for family connection; where he came from in Ohio.
C.W. (Charles) Dewey in 1880 census in Ridge, Van Wert County, Ohio. Children with this Charles and wife's name align with those found in the 1870 census in Indiana.
Also found my gggrandmother's (Mary Ann Trader Easterwood) brother, Isaac Trader, and sister, Rachel York, had also moved from the Rising Sun, Indiana area to Van Wert County, Ohio for the 1880 census also. Even stronger evidence, I think, that C.W. Dewey was a close friend of the family or a relative. I still have not heard from any C.W.'s descendents or researchers as to where he was born in Ohio.
