I have struggled for awhile to find anything more on my gr-gr-grandfather, William Lennox, a railroad brakeman who was killed in an accident in 1882:
There were many newspaper accounts of the accident, and I can find William in Pittsburgh in the 1880 Census and in Trumbull, Ohio in the 1870 Census. I also know that he was married at the old St. Paul Cathedral in downtown Pittsburgh in 1869.
Another Lennox researcher on Wikitree (Ed Lennox) suggested that I look into the William Lenox in this 1850 Census record, who is 1 year old and living in Washington Township, Jefferson County, PA. I haven't been able to find anything more on this family though (I just checked Jefferson County probate and didn't see anything promising) and can't find any trace of them in the 1860 Census - despite searching on numerous variations of the Lenox surname and their various given names:
Naturally, I don't expect anyone to look for me. I just wanted to put this out there, just in case anyone has come across this Lenox family.
