Sarah " Sally " ( Preble ) Eddo in Salisbury, Litchfield Co., CT. ( 1869 - 1883 )

Sarah " Sally " ( Preble ) Eddo in Salisbury, Litchfield Co., CT. ( 1869 - 1883 )

Posted: 1561652341000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Preble, Prebble, Eddo
I am searching for census records, death records, and obituary records for Sarah " Sally " ( Preble/Prebble ) Eddo who died in Salisbury, Litchfield Co., CT. in 1883. Her husband, Horace Eddo, died in New York in 1869 and some time thereafter, " Sally " went to live in Salisbury, CT. where she died in 1883. She was taken to New York to be buried next to her husband. Any help would be very much appreciated.

In the 1870 Federal census it looks like she was still in Stuyvesant, living with daughter Margaret Jane.
In the 1875 NY State census it appears that she was in Dutchess county, NY with a son, Abram Eddo.

Her son, James P. Eddo, painter, was living in Litchfield County, CT about the time of her death, he's in the 1880 census there but his mother is not.

Daughter, Margaret Jane Eddo, left Salisbury, CT for California in 1888 and died there in 1925 (see the attached news items). I'm sure you already know that James P. Eddo also ended up in California, and the 1901 tragedy in his life.

You're welcome.

Finally found her in the 1880 census, actual image shows the spelling is EDDO. She wasn't in Connecticut yet, still with son Abram.

Source Citation: Year: 1880; Census Place: North East, Dutchess, New York; Roll: 824; Page: 299D; Enumeration District: 045, Familysearch

My note:
- Her middle initial is "M" here instead of "A" as in other records, her grave marker also shows a middle initial "M" instead of "A".
- When given, her birth location is different in every record.

James P. Eddo ended up in California and there was a 1901 tragedy in his life? I have heard that his wife and infant son died in childbirth and that his sister, Margaret Jane Eddo, went from Salisbury, Litchfield Co., CT. to California to help him raise his children...or is there even another tragedy? Another thought....Where was Horace Eddo and his wife, Sally, living during the 1860 census? Was he living in Stuyvessant, Columbia Co., N.Y. by then or was he still living in Milton, Saratoga Co., N.Y. Thanks again for all of your help. You are a saint to me.

I am searching at the moment for the following:

1. Rhoda ( Mayo ) Preble/Prebble: died on Mar. 12, 1851. In the 1850 census, she was living in Milton, Saratoga Co., N.Y. Parts of Milton were called Ballstown at one time and the first Presbyterian Church was there in 1834. The family was firmly Presbyterian. I am searching for Rhoda's death record, burial record, grave stone, and obituary.

2. Abraham Preble/Prebble: husband of Rhoda above, died on Mar. 2, 1848. In the 1840 census, he was living in Greenfield, Saratoga Co., N.Y. He would have died in Greenfield or Milton. I am searching for his death record, burial record, grave stone, and obituary.

3. Horace Eddo: husband of Sarah " Sally " ( Preble ) Eddo, died in 1869 of suicide. He is buried in Stuyvessant Falls Cemetery in Stuyvessant, Columbia Co., N.Y. His widow was still living there in the 1870 census with her daughter, Margaret Jane Eddo. So that is probably where he died. I am searching for his death record and obituary.

4. Sarah " Sally " ( Preble ) Eddo; died on May 8, 1883 in Salisbury, Litchfield Co., N.Y. I am searching for her obituary.


That is what I am researching at the moment. Whatever anyone can do to help would be appreciated!
