Birth record of Edward Joseph Groja on 12/29/1897 in Chicago: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q23S-SX5G His WWI draft record: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K6D6-GSJ

Edward J. "Grojo" marriage record to Martha Schultz in 1918: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N78S-99M Edward in the 1920 census with Margaret and her mother Matilda Schultz: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MJQN-PFQ

Not sure how I missed these earlier, but the marriage record of Edward J. Groja to Rose Wolms in 1929: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q21K-LLQY Edward J. Groja with wife Rose Groja and stepdaughter Bernice Groja in the 1930 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XS54-PDK but we know that Rosa died in 1933, and both of these survivors are listed in her death notice.

There was a second Edward Groja of the same age in Chicago who came up in my searches, but he was born April 1896 in Michigan per this 1900 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MS3P-4GL married a lady named Theresa: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q21J-82LZ and his middle name was John: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V1KM-184 Just pointing him out to avoid confusion between the two men. :)

There were also some records of an Edward Groja married to an Ella Scheller; don't know if this was either of the men listed above, or a third man with the same name!

IL death index record matching the same parents from the birth record: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q2MF-7QZN and in the SSDI: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JYXC-F4X

I made a memorial for him in the cemetery from his death notice: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/204577546/edward-jospeh-... and his billiongraves page shows that he is buried there with Ada, so I made one for her too.
