Hello. I looked up the information on Clara Dwelle and O.E. Moore.
1870 Erie County census shows 18 year Clara living at home on Kelley's Island with her parents S.S. Dwelle (58), Lydia (50), Brothers H.E. (28), Alonzo (24), Charles (22) & Hattie (8). There was also a Lucy Shirley (15) staying with them. She and Hattie are shown as school children.
Jared (misspelled Jerrod) (26) was living nearby with wife Amelia (24), 2year olds William & W.S., plus school child Mary Davy (10).
At 1880 census, Sylvester S (67), Lydia T.(60), Alonzo (34), Charles (32) & Harriet (18) are still listed in same residence.
Orton E. Moore (28) and Clara D. (28) are listed nearby along with Maud E. Hicks (10-school child). Orton is listed as sailor, foot mashed, parents from Vermont).
At 1900 census, Orton E. Moore (48, born June 1851) and Clara D. (48, born January 1852) are listed with daughter Malvina (19, born May 1881). They are listed as married 21 years, 1 child/1 living. Orton employed as steamboat captain 8 mos. of year. Home rented.
I believe Clara died in 1922, but haven't looked it up.
Benjamin F Dwelle is shown in 1882-83 Sandusky City Directory, residing at 336 Huron Ave., working at Dwelle & Lewis, located at northeast corner of Columbus & Water (foot of Columbus Ave.). Company is listed as Dealers in grain, hay, flour, feed, cement & salt. L.W. Lewis is listed as residing at 426 Columbus Ave., operating additional business as grocers & ship chandlers.
Acc to Sandusky Evening Star, Feb. 11, 1903 he died at Port Clinton, Tues. morning at 10:00, casue pneumonia. Recently resided in Port Clinton. Quoting here, "Deceased was 85 years & well known in this city. For many years he we conspicuously identified with the business interests of the city. He was a man of unusual ability and untiring energy. A widow, son, daughter survive." Funeral Episcopal Church, Port Clinton. Burial family cemetery Danbury Twp., near Gypsum (visible from Rt. 2).
Weekly Register also reported his death following 6 week illness. Buried "where rests the dust of his ancestors."
Old obits are quite interesting. Hope this helps. Chris Reed
