Edward Marshall Lennox was born 11th March 1832 in Ireland and died May 9, 1910 in West Plains, Howell Co., Missouri. Would love to have his obituary to find out which of his siblings are still living and where they are living. There are several of his siblings which we have totally lost contact with, which include Rosanna, Francis John, James and Letitia. It is that they probably emigrated  to the USA as well and perhaps to Missouri as did Edward. I would be ever so grateful if you were able to find out what became of Edward’s siblings. Thank you.

Where was he born in Ireland? Do you know the names of his parents? What else do you know of his siblings? A little more information may help us to identify them.

The 1870 U S census has Francis J Lennox, 31, Edward M Lennox, 33, and Letitia  C Lennox, 21, all born Ireland, living  Waltham, LaSalle, Illinois. Might they be yours?

Thank you very much, everyone. Mckha489, thank you for the obit. Must be the correct person. Would have been nice if they had named the wife. Brentor boy, I am thinking that is the family in 1870 in Illinois. The ages are all out but are relatively in order. Edward is 2 yr older than Francis John with Edward being born 1832 and Francis John born 1834 in Aughrim, Co. Derry, Ireland. Edward should be about 38 and Francis John should be 36. Letitia was born 1839 so 5 yr younger than Francis John and should be 31 instead of 21. Still, thinking this possibly them. I wonder if they are still there in 1880. No James with them.
As for the emigration in 1862, Rosanna and Letitia are 9.5 yr apart in age and these are 2 yr apart. Letitia’s age would be correct at 22 but Rosanna would be 32. Still maybe ????.
Thanks again for the help. I will try to find them in 1880.
