Edward and William Derenzy of Echo Township were brothers. Possibly John was also their brother and there may have been other siblings. I have dates for William born in 1850 and Edward born in 1840. Edward C. Derenzy was my husband's great-great grandfather.
William Derenzy and Edward Derenzy are believed to be brothers. William E. Derenzy is the son of Edward and Madora Scott. Clifford Derenzy is the son of William E. and Murriel Spence. -
