An American Family History

Edward Groves

Illinois became a state in 1818. A large influx of American settlers came in the 1810s by the Ohio River.

Edward Groves was born on December 15, 1875 in Illinois. He was the son of Isabelle Solinger and Ridraldo T. Groves.

Isabelle's grandson, Richard Fox wrote

I don't know about any children but one, Ed Groves, who ran a candy store possibly in Kansas City. He used to send five or ten pounds of candy to Isabelle every Christmas and I got my fill. This was old-fashioned candy he manufactured himself. Some of it was hard candy ribbons, hoar hound, fudge with nuts, etc. Much of it you would never find today.
