Birth: Dec. 2, 1821
Ohio, USA
Death: Aug. 28, 1871

She was the daughter of Lazarus Ross & Lydia Prickett.

Lydia was married 3 times

1st - William Mourer/Mowry/Monry/Mower on 25 February 1845 in Highland County, Ohio. They had a daughter, Helena Mourer. William died about 1846.

Widow, Lydia Moury (26 Ohio) appears in the 1850 United States Federal Census (19 September 1850) for White Oak Township, Highland, Ohio (page 325, family 460) along with her daughter Helena J. Moury (4 Ohio). They were living with her widowed father, Lazarus Rofs (65 Virginia, Cooper). Also in the home was Granville Rofs (10 Ohio).

2nd - Elijah Waldren on 07 December 1854 in Brown County, Ohio. They had at least two sons, John H. Waldren & Elijah A. Waldren.

Lydia Waldren (37 Ohio) is found in the 1860 United States Federal Census (9 July 1860) for Meigs, Adams, Ohio (page 103, family 722) along with her children, Helena Waldren (14 Ohio), John H. Waldren (4 Ohio) and Elijah H. Waldren (3 Ohio). A boy named Jefferson Waldren (17 Ohio) was also living with them, working as a farmer. He may be Lydia's stepson. Her real estate was valued at $500, and personal property at $250. It appears that she is widowed again on this census. Her daughter, Helena Mourer is listed as; Helena Waldren. She appears to have been adopted by Elijah Waldren, Sr. Jefferson Waldren is apparently a child of Elijah Waldren, Sr. by his first marriage.

"History of Grant County, Indiana" that states "Lydia & Elijah settled on a farm on Brush Creek in Adams County, Ohio. Lydia was widowed in 1861 at which time she moved to Jalapa in Pleasant Township, Grant County, Indiana. She was a regular member of the Methodist Church.

3rd - William F. Baird on 05 September 1865 in Grant County, Indiana.

She died 28 August 1871 at the age of 49y, 8m,26d which would make her birth date 02 December 1821.
