  • Notes 
    • Eliza Redenbaugh and John Munson must have divorced. John Munson isfound in the 1900 census still living in Montgomery County, however,with a new spouse, and they have been married only one year at thetime of the census. Also, Eliza is remarried in the 1900 census.Florence must have been previously married perhaps. The 1900 censuslists her as having had one child and the one child was still living.However, the child is not living with her at the time of the 1900census.

      "I am looking for anyone who might be able to find marriage records orbirth
      records on Ora Marion Munson born 24 Feb. 1886 to a John Munson andEliza
      Ellen Redenbaugh. He was married three times that I know of, to aClara
      Thomas, Ora Vivian Ring and Leona Smith. My grandfather was born in1914 or
      1915 to Ora Vivian Ring Munson and Ora Marion Munson. I can not findany
      record of the birth or the marriage of said parents. I am at a deadend and
      would really like to clarify the information that I have with actualrecords
      so that I can get the correct children with the correct parents andhave the
      right dates for all events. I would really appreciate any information.
      Thanks a million,
      Naomi Ohman (my mother was a Munson)" [Per Email from Peggy Clark,Friday, July 20, 2007 1:48 PM]
