Here is some of the information I have about this generation. I also have a photo of David Waring, brother to your Eliza. I hope this helps you!

The following biographical information is from the HISTORY OF COSHOCTON COUNTY pages 424-427:

“James O. Waring, a practical, progressive and enterprising farmer living in Bethlehem township, where he owns one hundred and seventy acres of rich and productive land, was born in this township, November 15, 1861. His parents were David and Mary (Blyler) Waring, the former a native of Virginia and the latter of Pennsylvania. In the year 1832 David Waring came to Coshocton county with his father, purchased a farm and carried on general agricultural pursuits throughout his remaining days, becoming one of the leading and progressive agriculturists of the community. He died in the year 1904, having for about twenty years survived his wife, who passed away in 1884. They were the parents of the following children: D.L. of this township; J. Owen and Oscar M., residents of Indiana; Arthur, deceased; Edgar A., of Akron, Ohio; Dr. Leander, residing at Danville, Illinois; Anna, the wife of John Arnold, deceased; Hattie, the wife of C.B. Hershman, of Coshocton; and Adie, the wife of Ed Schoonover, also a resident of Coshocton.”

“The boyhood days of James O. Waring were quietly passed in the pursuits of the home farm, where he remained assisting his father until he had attained his majority. He then rented the old home place and to its further development and improvement directed his energies for twenty years. As success has attended him he has made investment in property and is now the owner of one hundred and seventy acres of rich and productive land in Bethlehem township. Everything about his place is indicative of the careful supervision of a painstaking and progressive owner, for the buildings are kept in good repair and he uses the latest improved machinery to facilitate the work in the fields. In addition to raising the cereals best adapted to soil and climate he has made a specialty of raising sheep and has a large and valuable flock.”

“At the time of his father’s death Mr. Waring was made administrator of the estate. While he has lived a somewhat uneventful life, he had one thrilling experience which few would care to go through with. In 1894, he was robbed by three masked men, who shot him in the ear, knocked him down and took from him forty dollars. They gagged him and one of his aunts, but spared the other aunt this indignity, for she appealed to their sympathy when she asked them if they had a mother and promised that she would say nothing of the affair. The robbers, however, took possession of the house, secured a good supper from the pantry and then left with their booty.”

“Mr. Waring has never been married and lives with his brother D.L. Waring. He has held several township offices, the duties of which he has discharged with promptness and fidelity, while his political support is given to the republican party that finds in him an earnest advocate, because he is in thorough sympathy with its principles.”

“Full of years, spent in good deeds to his fellow men, and prepared by a good life, to go before his Creator, David Waring breathed his last at 4 o’clock Tuesday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C.B. Hershman, on Main street. The passing of the spirit was simply the gradual breaking down under the burden of the long years.”
“Mr. Waring was born in Richmond, Virginia of good old Dominion stock, but came to this county at a tender age, with his parents. For nearly three quarters of a century he has dwelt in Coshocton county.”

“For many years he dwelt upon a farm in Bethlehem township, and was known for his even temper and his good deeds among his neighbors. His was a Christian life, he having long been identified with the M.P. church; but the latter years were ruffled and the wealth of worldly goods that he had accumulated was disbursed in helping men whom he thought his friends.”

“He leaves nine children to mourn their loss, his wife having passed to the great beyond twelve years ago. Three other children had preceded the mother. Those left are: Lawson and James, of Bethlehem township; John, Sidney, Ind.; Oscar, Ellwood, Ind.; Dock L., Hoopestown, Ill.; Edward, Akron; Mrs. Anna Arnold, Killbuck; and Mrs. Edward Schoonover and Mrs. C.B. Hershman, Coshocton.”

“The funeral services will be held at the house at 10 a.m. Wednesday and burial at the old home burying ground in Bethlehem township.”

“Mrs. David Warring, who had been an inmate of the Asylum for the Insane at Columbus, Oho less than a month, died at that institution last Sunday. The remains were taken to the former home of the deceased in Bethlehem township, this county, for interment.”
