7) Edward Meise (James Edward), born December 26, 1889, Selma, Clark County, Ohio. According to records due to his christening occurring two years after his actual birth in 1889, when Henrietta passed, and is listed as 1891 at adoption by Frederick Augustus and Sarah Wolfe Derr. Edward went back to Noah in adulthood having never accepted his adoption. Edward passed away in 1919 at Cook Base Hospital 28.
GG-Grandpa Noah was a farmer and also a driver of a 20-mule team for the famous Borax Company. Later he became a home gardener. He died from tuberculosis.
His son Edward also suffered from TB and moved out from Arizona due to the disease, returning to Ohio and entered the hospital where he later died from the terrible disease. We have been able to locate his son Edward's burial place in Preble County, Ohio. He passed away 4 years, one month, and one day after his father of the same disease that ravaged and claimed so many lives.

May our beloved Noah rest in the loving peace of God knowing we have now found his loved son Edward, whom we pray now rests in peace.
