Researching the MacEachen Name

Classification: Query
Surnames: MacEachen, Humphrey
I am researching my great-grandmother. her married name is Sarah F. Humphrey. Her maiden name was MacEachen. From what I have researched so far, is that in 1890 there is a marriage license for George W. Humphrey and Sarah MacEachen, filed in Perry county, Ohio. In the 1910 US Census both her and George Humphrey are listed, once under Coal, Ohio (in Perry County) and again under New Straitsville, Ohio (Perry County). Both listings include their children and ages (my grandfather's death certificate says he was born in Shawnee, Ohio in 1892.

On one listing she is listed as being Candian French and the other as Candian English. In 1920 both her and George were living in Columbus, Ohio. George died in 1927. In the 1930 Census she has a daughter and son living with her and a border named Louise Gabler. Sarah passed away Oct. 16, 1952.

I have Sarah's death certificate and it says that she was born in Cape Breton. Her father's name was Angus MacEachen and her mother's maiden name was Elizabeth MacIntyre. On her death certificate it does not give any middle name or initial, the F used in her name is from the Census materials I found.

From one record, it said she came to this country in 1875 from Canada. I know that there was an Angus MacEachen that lived in Perry County Ohio with aa wife Elizabeth. In 1880 they had a daughter, Sarah A. and in 1900 she is not listed, assumong she was married to George W. Thre are two other nmaes that may be related to the Humphrey/MacEachen group. The surnames of Randolph and Cosgrove were names I heard when I was little. The person who gave the information for Sarah Humphrey's death certificate was Loretta Randolph. All of the uncles and aunts have passed away and there is no one who remembers the name and faces.

I would appreciate if anyone has any info on the Humphry/MacEachen family. Also, if you have any Candian connections. Thank you all.
