62. Edwin V. WELCH Jr. (Virginia Lafayette BASSFORD3, Thomas2, William1). Born abt 1847-1848 in New York, NY.56,55 age 22 in 1879 census, age 33 in 1880 census. Edwin V. died in Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., OH, on 16 Nov 1918.98 aka: Edward.56

He is unemployed and living with his parents at the time of the 1880 census.55

His death certificate gives his birth date 28 Aug 1861, New York, NY, which is inconsistent with other data. However, it shows his parents to be Edwin Welch and Virginia Bassford, so it must be the right person.98

The 1880 census lists Bessie as the daughter of Edward and Virginia, but I think she should be the daughter-in-law.55
