I am looking for the death record of Henry Morrison, born 1826/1829 in Pennsylvania, and living in Wheeling, West Virginia with wife & family at the time of the 1860 federal census (October).
I know that he died before 1864 as his widow is listed in the city directory as a widow by then.
There is one death record for a Henry Morrison in Wheeling, 1 Feb 1862, but his age is wrong and it states that he was unmarried (or maybe not?). http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view2.aspx?FilmNumber=857521&ImageNumber=125 (kindly provided by a member of this site, below)
I have no evidence to suggest that he was in the Civil War on either side- the census states that he was a businessman in an iron foundry and family stories support this. There are no Civil War pension records for his widow either.
Any suggestions about how to find his 1860-1864 death record with such a common name?
