Jonas Hartwell

Occupation*1831Jonas Hartwell was a yeoman in West Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, and was appointed Administrator of the estate of John Bolton (the Nephew) in the fall of 1831.1
(Administrator) Administration3 October 1831In a letter to Justice Wilkes Wood dated 3 October 1831, John E. Howard wrote that he was the guardian of the deceased John Bolton's father, Joseph Bolton Jr.. Stating also that the deceased John Bolton died without issue, John E. Howard requested that Jonas Hartwell, a selectman of West Bridgewater, be appointed Administrator of John Bolton's estate.2
(Administrator) Administration4 October 1831The estate of John Bolton of West Bridgewater, who died intestate, was opened for probate on 4 October 1831 in East Bridgewater. Jonas Hartwell was appointed Administrator by Wilkes Wood Esq., Judge of the Probate of Wills, and for granting Letters of Administration, and Hartwell paid a Surety Bond of $200 with Benjamin B. Howard and Libbeus Packard as witnesses.1
(Administrator) Inventory3 April 1832The initial Inventory of the estate of John Bolton, late of West Bridgewater, was filed with Justice Wilkes Wood on 3 April 1832 in East Bridgewater. It had been completed by appraisers Nathan Alger Jr., George W. Lathrop and Stillman Alger and sworn to by Administrator Jonas Hartwell. The initial inventory of the estate was valued at $239.89 and included personal and household items in addition to notes of loans, with interest, against three individuals: Willis Alger, Nathan Alger and John Willis owed the deceased $150.59, $29.75 and $25.32 respectively.1
(Administrator) Final Accounting2 April 1833One year later, on 2 April 1833, a second and possibly final Inventory and Expenses of the estate of John Bolton, was submitted by Administrator Jonas Hartwell and filed with Probate Justice Wilkes Wood in East Bridgewater. New items totaling $162.14 had been added to the $239.89 value of the initial inventory making the total value of his estate $402.03 before expenses. $150.00 and $10.00 had been received from the estates of Nathan Alger and Abiezer Alger Esq. respectively, interest received totaled $2.00 and there was $.14 cash in hand. The Administrator requested and received allowance in the amount of $137.72 for the following estate expenses: $5.16 in funeral charges, $34.50 for the deceased's last sickness, $20.11 paid to Dr. Caleb Swan, $6.47 paid to Dr. Noah Whitman, $1.70 in expenses for appraising the estate, $12.28 lost in the sale of the personal estate, $1.00 paid to Charles Hayden, $15.00 for a pair of gravestones and $41.50 for settling the estate.

The net value of the estate, after expenses, in 1833 was $264.31 which in today's dollars (2009) would be about $6,830. No mention of a wife, children or family members were found in the probate papers nor was there any indication of how the closing amount was disbursed.1

Alexander Haskins1

b. 12 May 1816, d. 26 March 1889
Birth*12 May 1816Alexander Haskins was born on 12 May 1816 in Pennsylvania.2,3
Name VariationHe was called Alex.4
Marriage*He married first Coziah __?__.4
Census US 1850*25 September 1850Coziah and Alex Haskins were enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 25 September 1850 in Green, Mercer County, Pennsylvania. Alex was recorded as 30 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $400, and Coziah was 25 years of age. Three children were enumerated with them in 1850. Amos was 6 years old and had attended school within the census year; Joseph was 3 years old; and Oren was age one.4
(Husband) DeathAlex became a widower when Coziah Haskins died, probably shortly after the birth of the couple's fourth child and before the age of 30 years. Coziah's death left him with three young sons and an infant daughter.4
Research Notes*1856 Shortly after his wife's death, Alexander separated his four children and scattered the three youngest among three different families living in Brookfield, Clinton County, Iowa, possibly keeping his eldest son, Amos, who in 1856 would have been about 12 years old, with him. By 1856, when the Iowa State Census was taken, Joseph, who was about 9 years old, was living with William and Ann Backon; Oren, who was about 7 years old, was living with the family of Magdalena and Samuel Brumbaugh, (their surname spelled "Broombaugh" by the census taker); and baby Elizabeth, who was about 3 years old, was living with Irvin and Catharine Polhemus. We note that, according to the data of the various census pages, each of the children had lived in Iowa for different periods of time. Oren for 9 months, Elizabeth for 6 months, and Joseph for 4 months. Four years later, on the 1860 Federal Census, Elizabeth, at age 7 years, was still living with Irvin and Catharine Polhemus in Brookfield, Clinton County, and her brother, Joseph, at age 14, was living with them also. Oren, who was 11 years old in 1860, was living with the family of Susannah (Brumbaugh) Hudson, and her husband, John S. Hudson, in Sharon, Clinton County, Iowa.

Father*Alexander Haskins1 b. 12 May 1816, d. 26 Mar 1889
Mother*Coziah __?__1 b. 1825
Birth*1844Amos Haskins was born about 1844 in Pennsylvania.1
(Son) Census US 185025 September 1850Amos was enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 25 September 1850 in the household of his parents in Green, Mercer County, Pennsylvania. He was 6 years old and had attended school within the census year.1
(Son) DeathHis mother died, probably before the age of 30 years, when Amos was still a young boy. His mother's death left Amos's father with three young sons and an infant daughter.1
(Eldest Son) Research Notes1856 Shortly after their mother's death, their father separated his four children, Amos, Joseph, Oren and Elizabeth, and scattered the three youngest among three different families living in Brookfield, Clinton County, Iowa, possibly keeping his eldest son, Amos, who in 1856 would have been about 12 years old, with him. By 1856, when the Iowa State Census was taken, Joseph, who was about 9 years old, was living with William and Ann Backon; Oren, who was about 7 years old, was living with the family of Magdalena and Samuel Brumbaugh, (their surname spelled "Broombaugh" by the census taker); and baby Elizabeth, who was about 3 years old, was living with Irvin and Catharine Polhemus. We note that, according to the data of the various census pages, each of the children had lived in Iowa for different periods of time. Oren for 9 months, Elizabeth for 6 months, and Joseph for 4 months. Four years later, on the 1860 Federal Census, Elizabeth, at age 7 years, was still living with Irvin and Catharine Polhemus in Brookfield, Clinton County, and her brother, Joseph, at age 14, was living with them also. Oren, who was 11 years old in 1860, was living with the family of Susannah (Brumbaugh) Hudson, and her husband, John S. Hudson, in Sharon, Clinton County, Iowa. Susannah was a daughter of Oren's 1856 foster parents, Magdalena and Samuel Brumbaugh. The children's eldest brother, Amos, was enumerated in 1860 with their father and new stepmother in Forest, Howard County, Iowa.2,3,4,5,6
(Son) Marriagebefore 18 July 1860He was about 15 years old when his father married a second time to Margaret Kirby, whom we believe had not been married before, and had no children.7,8,5
(Son) Census US 186018 July 1860Amos was enumerated on the 1860 census taken on 18 July 1860 in the household of his father and stepmother near the Foreston Post Office, Forest, Howard County, Iowa. He was 17 years old and his occupation was recorded as "Service."5
