John Merit ELWOOD was born 2 Jun 1859 in Michigan and died 12 Feb 1933 in Coos Co, Oregon. His parents were John Merit ELWOOD (born 25 Apr 1820 in England and died 10 Dec 1907 in Coos Co, Oregon) and Mary Elizabeth HOWARD (died 2 Aug 1891 in Anoka Co, Minnesota). Mary was probably born in England and they may have married there as well. Where in Michigan was John (Jr) born? I would like more information on Mary and to learn when and where they married. Did they have more children besides John Jr? When did they immigrate to the US? I have so many questions – I hope someone can help!
