Edward Dunham Andrus, b. 5 Jan 1894, d. 26 Feb 1895 in Elyria.

Merritt's first wife was Arvilla Marie Austin. They were divorced 22 Feb 1858 in Lorain Co. Would be nice if I could get their divorce papers. They had five children, Ida Marie (who was a physician in Cuyahoga Co), Jonas Willard, Peter Buel, Cora May, and Lucina Sophrona. Merritt's second wife was Juliette F. Dow, b. 27 Apr 1836 VT, d. 6 Dec 1912 in Elyria. Their son was Loomis G. After Merritt's death, she married Edward/Edwin Reynolds.
I have the death certs for Juliette F. Reynolds and Loomis G. Andrus, but nothing else for these other names. Thank you for offering to get death records. This is very much appreciated.
