Mattie Caroline Eagon and Edward Zarvis

Classification: Query
Mattie Caroline EAGON was one of the children of Solomon Franklin Eagon and Isabel Alice Gardner. Mattie was born abt June 1885 in Ohio (probably Vinton Co., OH). I can trace Mattie in the U.S. census thru 1920. In 1900 and 1910 she is in Richland Twp., Vinton Co., OH and in 1920, she is in Clinton Twp. of Vinton Co. I cannot find her in the 1930 census, but there is a Mattie Zervis in the Ohio death index for 1941 in Vinton Co.

Several internet sources say that she married an Edward ZERVOS, but offer no evidence as to where or when. Since Mattie Caroline Eagon is listed as single in the 1920 census, I would assume that the marriage (if it happened) took place AFTER 1920.

Edward Zervis was the son of John C. Zervis and Millia Nogle. He was born in 1886 in OH (again, possibility in Vinton Co. or in Hocking Co., OH). I have been able to identify Edward in the 1900 and 1910 U.S. Census in Clinton Twp., Vinton Co., OH and he enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1918 from Vinton Co. But I have not been able find Edward after 1919 when he was honorably discharged from the Army.

QUESTION: Can someone help me to identify Mattie Caroline Eagon (or should it be ZERVIS) in the 1930 census?

QUESTION: Can someone help me to identify Edward Zervis in the 1920 and 1930 censuses, and when and where he may have died?

Mattie Caroline Eagon is part of my wife's MORRIS family, descended from Lewis (of Passage Point) Morris of NJ.

Willing to share information.
