1870 Census record for Elizabeth Zerby



4. Lewis E. ZERBY, son of John ZERBY and Elizabeth HAMILTON , was born on 19 Aug 1836 in Allenville, Mifflin Co., PA, died on 10 Sep 1864 in Concord, Morgan Co., IL, at age 28, and was buried in Concord Cemetery.

Lewis migrated to Concord, Illinois with his family when he was sixteen. He is listed in the household of John and Rachel Zerby in both the 1850 and 1860 census for Concord, Morhan Co., IL. He married Elizabeth Beeley when he was twenty four and had three children. He remained in Concord until his death in 1864 at the age of 28.

After Lewis' death apparently his widow married his half brother Adam H. Zerby. The 1870 census for Concord, Morgan Co., IL shows Lewis' children in the household of Adam and Elizabeth Zerby.

Lewis middle name was probably "Elias" based on an incomplete entry made in "Blue Book of Schuykill Co., PA"

Most of the above information is from Dr. John F. Valentine's worksheet on Lewis E. Zerby.
