DEATH:

Residence Notes:
In 1861 Edmund was living either next door to or in the same house as his parents in law James and Dorothy CRASE but we are unable to find his wife, who was then pregnant, anywhere in the 1861 census of Cornwall.
Next door to the CRASE husband and wife were a family headed by the unmarried Avis RICKHARD. Were these relatives of the Edmund's second wife Grace RICKARD?
The family does not appear in the 1875 Eureka census. The CD index of the 1880 Census locates them in New Town, Eureka. The Cornish American Connection cite the 1891 Census as their evidence that Edmund, Grace, Beatrice and Thomas were in Redruth in 1891.
New Town was the name for the northern part of Ruby Hill where most of the Cornish settlers lived. In the annual tax rolls of 1888 and 1889 his house had a real estate value of $100.
In 1891 Edmund and his family were at 27, Clinton Road, Redruth. We have stayed in a bed and breakfast place in Clinton Road which is a road of substantial Victorian houses near the centre of Redruth.

OCCUPATIONS:
BEF 1851-AFT 1851: Blacksmith in Simms Croft.
BEF 1859-AFT 1859: Miner in Redruth.Occupation Note: The Cornish-American Connection also records him as a mine agent..
BEF 1861-AFT 1861: Mine Agent in Illogan.
BEF 1879-ABT 1889: Grocer for Our Store in Ruby Hill, Eureka.Occupation Note: The Eureka Daily Sentinel of 4 Feb 1879 reports that "Morcom is doing a good business at `Our Store' on Ruby Hill. He is a general favourite among the denizens of that locality."On 19th Sept. 1879 the paper reported that "Mr E.Morcom of `Our Store' who has been ill for several months with a severe attack of inflammatory rheumatism and rheumatic fever, is out again."On 2nd Oct 1879 a new theatre building in Eureka was dedicated with a "Grand Ball". Morcom, along with most of the merchants on Ruby Hill, was listed among the committee of invitation.The 1880 Census describes him as a `grocer'.Gary SPARGO reports that "by 1888 Ruby Hill was in quite a state of decline and many businessmen had folded up". This was presumably why the MORCOM family left Nevada about then..
BEF 1891-AFT 1891: Retired Mine Agent in Redruth.
BEF 1910-AFT 1910: Retired Farmer in Union, Ada County.

GENERAL NOTES:
Was Edmund in America between the death of Dorothy CRASE in 1867 and his marriage to Grace RICKARD in 1872? He does not appear in Ross 1871 Cornwall Census, when his children were with their maternal grandmother. 1910 Census of Idaho says that both Edmund and Grace immigrated in 1866.
The NV tax listing for 1888 lists Edmund as having $100 assessed property value in Eureka Co.
