Elihu Iddings was born 1852 in Wayne Co., Ill. to William and Jane Harlin Iddings. In 1878-79 Elihu married Pamelia May, possibly in Wayne Co. By 1889 they lived in St.Louis, Mo. Per the 1910 census of St. Louis, (Elihu was listed as Elihan), they indicated they had no children, but during the period circa 1905-1909 they "adopted Vivian". I didnot find them on other census'. Elihu died in St. Louis in 1/1916 and Pamelia died (possibly in St. Louis) after 1921. To find out more about Elihu's ancestors, go to the Internet's World Connect Project, insert Elihu Iddings and look for the posting by "Woodward", then click on Ahnentafel. Good Luck. I am not related to this family. Bob Eddings.
