low.
George's son, William became a U.S. citizen on December 9, 1899. From his naturalizaton certificate I learned that William entered the U.S. at six weeks of age, hence January 1876. Therefore, George, Margaret, Mary and Gertrude moved to Michigan at that time. George died when he was crushed between two railroad cars on 4 Jun 1880, about fours years after leaving Canada and returning to the U.S., but this time in Michigan. He had been working as a brakeman on the railroad for only a short time. His inexperience was probably the cause of his tragic death according to a newspaper article (see George's file for article). George probably emigrated from Kincardine, Ontario, Canada because that is where William was born. Ida Feenstra says that George came through New York to Canada. She is probably right because the 1880 Federal Census says that George's place of birth as well as that of both of his parents was New York. This census is also where his occupations came from. However, George's parents were born in NJ according to the 1850, 1870 Fed'l Census (latter two census were for Geroge's mother Delilah only because his father Nathaniel died in 1860).

The question of George R.'s age is confusing because it varies so much from one source to another. Three sources in 1880 alone state his age as 46, 48, and 52-53.
In the Federal Census: 20 in the 1850 Census, (most likely his age was given by him or a parent);
28 in the 1860 Census (he was living with wife Mary E.);
34 in the 1870 Census, (probably shaved a few years off because he had just married a much younger wife, Margaret);
48 in the 1880 Ottawa Co., MI, Census where he was enumerated with his family (although he probably wasn't there on the day of the census and his wife Margaret gave his birthdate because she would have been the one to put the 1827 date on his tombstone as well);
46 in the 1880 Ottawa, MI, Census where he was enumerated in the place he probably lived while he was working on the railroad(appeared to be a boarding house or hotel) and he could have been on a run and a co-worker gave his estimated age. Records of vital statistics didn't start in NY State until 1881.

George held several different jobs or trades:
1850 he was a boatman on the Erie Canal;
1860 he was a day laborer;
1870 he was a lock tender on the Erie Canal;
1880 he was a tenant farmer and brakeman on the railroad.

As regards George's spouses, in the 1860 Fed'l Census for NY, he is married to Mary E., age 20, born in NY. There are no children on the census record, but there could have been children, after 1860, perhaps causing Mary E.'s death. Mary died in 1862, according to a record found in Tree Talks. In the 1870 Fed'l Census for NY, George is married to Margaret Burchill, but there is a six-year-old daughter Nora as well as daughter Mary E.(Mayme). Not sure when George married Margaret except that it was before June 1870 because she is in the household with George in the 1870 Fed'l Census for NY, age 19, born in Canada. Since Nora is six, she was born in 1864. Mary E. can't be her mother because she died in 1862 and Margaret can't be her mother because she would have been 12 years old when Nora was born. There must have been a second wife betweeen Mary E. and Margaret who was the mother of Nora.

Both of Margaret's parents were foreign-born, according to the 1870 census. Canadian would be considered foreign-born, but other research shows that Margaret's parents were probably born in Cork, Ireland, and emigrated to Canada with two children, Margaret's oldest brother and sister.

It appears that the child Mary E. "Mayme" was probably named after George's first wife, Mary E.. I need to find the marriage record of George R. and Margaret to see if they were married when Mary E. was born, or if Mary E. was the child of George's second wife, who perhaps died giving birth to Mary E.. I also need to search for the birth record of Nora around 1864 and the marriage record of George and his second wife between Mary E.'s death in 1862 and the birth of Nora in 1864. Mary E. "Mayme", born around December 1869 or January 1970 was probably the child of Margaret because the 1870 Census says that her mother was foreign-born(Margaret was born in Canada).

The 1870 Census is the first and only census where George has personal assets of any value, $200. In none of the census does he show a value for real estate. Therefore, he probably never owned land, at least during the census years, and land records may not provide additional information about George and his family. I wrote to the Wayne County Historian for land records for George and they only showed land records for Nathaniel and Theodore's purchase from Nathaniel. He didn't own land in Michigan, but there is a slim chance that he did in Canada.

From the 1850 Census for Arcadia Township, Wayne Co., NY it was determined that Delilah was George's mother and that his father was Nathaniel. Also living in the household were Esther, age 14, and James, age 10, both born in NY, and both attending school. Nathaniel, age 53 was a farmer, and George, age 20 was a boatman. There was a "C laborer"(don't know what the "C" stands for) living with them named Redman Jennings, age 50, born in NY.

Nathaniel died 6 February 1860, so he wouldn't be in the census taken in June of that year. Nor is their a mortality schedule for 1860 for Wayne Co., NY, that has survived. However, Delilah did not appear alone or as head of household after an exhaustive search on Ancestry.com, of the everyname index. She could have remarried and changed her name between February and June, but in 1870 she appears as Delila Horton.

The 1870 Census for NY made the first reference to Delila Horton, age 70, living with the George Horton family. She was born about 1800 in NJ, and the value of her personal assets was $1400.

Ottawa Co., MI Probate Court has no records of probate papers for George R. Horton's death in 1880(per phone conversation). The County Clerk has no record of George's death on June 4, 1880, nor does the Mecosta County Clerk (he died in Stanwood, MI). Neither one had any transcient death records (for those transported across county lines from Mecosta to Ottawa and the counties in between). The only source for his death is his obituary on the front page of a Grand Rapids newspaper. He made the front page because it was a gory death. He was a brakeman who hadn't been on the job long when he was crushed between two railroad cars in Stanwood, Mecosta Co.. George was really a farmer who couldn't make a living as a tenant farmer, so he took a job with the railroad. Since the accident happened in the summer, he probably didn't farm at all that summer.

According to the Arcadia Historian, Bob Hoeltzel(2/2003), someone who describes himself as a "boatman"(1860 Census) could have been a captain or a hogee (walks along side the mule or horse while he pulls the barge through the Erie Canal). In the 1870 census, George's occupation was "lock tenderer." He opened and closed the lock by hand as the boats went through the canal locks at Lockville.

Lockville may be a key comment made by Bob Hoeltzel. I am trying to determine if Nathaniel Horton(George's father) was the son of Jonah Horton of Chester, Morris Co., NJ. The Hortons in America book by Adeline White says that Jonah died in Lockport, NY, although he was born and buried in Chester. Perhaps he went to visit or stay with Nathaniel who lived in Arcadia near Lockville (similar name to Lockport). According to Bob, Lockville doesn't exist anymore, but did at the time of Jonah's death. However, there is a Lockport, NY in existance. Read notes for Jonah Horton for additional information.

S. Rase, officiating. Sponsors were his father, Lorenz Harms, and Josephine Wolff. Josephine was his mother Bessie's sister, but I am confused about who Lorenz was. Parents are not usually sponsors. The only Lorenz besides his father was his brother Lorenz or Larry, but he still would have only been six years old on the day of Robert's baptism, so Lorenz must have been Robert's father.

rton
Who was my mother? Granted, this is only one person's memories of Helen Smith-Harms and much of the accounting is from a child's point of view. Nevertheless, my description, imperfect as it may be, has to be shared. Over the last almost 50 years of genealogical study, one thing is evident to me--the lives that I have explored are vacant. They overflow with vital statistics designed to prove the family member's existence, but are devoid of personality, pathos, and elation. Too many times my hobby has left me yearning to understand who the person I am studying really is. I want to know about their life experiences and how those life experiences influenced their path in life. I will not let that happen to my life's story and the stories of the important people in my life, like my mother.

my mother.
Mom was sweet, loving and gregarious! As a full-time mother and housewife (career women were definately in the minority in the1950's), she was always there for us when we arrived home from school or she picked us up at school or scouts. That's a luxury that my career didn't allow me to do for Rob and Alison. Mom attended all of our parent-teacher conferences and participated in bakesales and other fund raisers, but never in leadership roles. Mom didn't like to be in the spotlight.

In addition to her children, Mom loved bowling, bridge, and traveling! Once a week, for nine months a year, Mom drove to Blue Hens (Delaware state bird) Bowling Alley. For 50 years she shared wins and losses with little variation in her team members, taking the league championship occasionally. Bowling was one of her social outlets as was bridge. Mom belonged to a daytime bridge club that rotated their meetings from one member's home to another for 35 years. Hosting was a very serious responsibility; the details and the execution were critical. No paper products at those weekly meetings! She and Dad belonged to a monthly couples bridge group too. Quite often on a weekend night, another couple (Arzingers, Shipleys and especially the Conways) would join Mom and Dad for an evening of drinking and Pinochle. I was usually awakened by the Conway's booming voices and echoing laughter, something we didn't hear much of in the Harms family.

Pinochle was the card game of choice at my German relatives' home in Hoboken. Pinochle, played with a deck of 48 cards, was brought to America by German immigrants. Over a game, Mom and Dad enjoyed Manhattans and kibitzing for hours with Tanta, Aunt Henny, Uncle Johnny, and Opa. Many a glass was lifted as everyone toasted with "Prost" ("cheers" in German). They all spoke German at hoime, but eveyone except Opa also spoke English. During WWI, they were deligent about confining their communications to English outside their home, fearing retribution and derision from strangers. Although there was a sizeable German community in Hoboken, it was risky to place an order in German with the German butcher or say danke (thanks) when the baker handed you your stolen (holiday loaf studded with candied fruit).

After Richard and I were grown and married off, Mom sought adventure. Dad had no interest in the aesthetics or the exhilaration that the feeling of discovery offers. History repeated iitself, a generation later, when Roger showed the same disinterest as I chose to conquer new vistas later in life. I admired the fact that Mom "spread her wings" and launched her flight of discovery. At first, she and her travel companion, Sydney, chose the road more traveled to Scandinavia and Europe. One of those European trips, sans Sydney, included my mother-in-law Ruth. The only traveling that Ruth had done before Europe was a family trip from Michigan to Idaho to visit cousins when she was a teenager. Ruth and Helen were such different personalities, but they endured because each was convivial in her own right. After the trip Mom continued her travels, but Ruth never took to the skies again.

After a few years, Mom and Sydney ventured on more exotic site-seeing excursions; from riding an elephant in India to a camel (Mom was sore for weeks) in the Middle East, and from the colorful spires in Moscow to the pyramids of Egypt. Singapore, Alaska, and Hawaii are certainly worth mentioning. Mom's trip to Hawaii was a family affair. I had won the trip as a prize for selling Worldbook Encyclopedias, Mom had just quit smoking after two packs a day for over 40 years, earning herself an invitation to join us to celebrate her accomplishment. (Dad had the same awful habit, but didn't quit until a year later.) On the extremely long flight, Mom coughed incessantly. Finally another passenger, a doctor, consulted with her. He announced that the coughing was the by-product of her lungs trying to rid themselves of the residual smoke. He could do nothing. It would take months to clear her lungs. We can attest to the first week.

Individuals : Winke Anna Auguste Minna
Not sure when Minnie emigrated to the U.S. She was an infant when her father died in Germany and her mother emigrated to the US to marry Robert Marquardt. Minnie probably traveled aboard a freighter because her new step-father was a long shoreman and there doesn't seem to be a record of her arrival at Ellis Island. Maybe she came in 1895 when her older sister Helene Anna, "Henny," was supposed to have arrived. Since Helene's children emigrated at different times, it is likely that Henny, Minnie's oldest sister and the last Winke child to emigrate, stayed in Hamburg to care for Minnie. Ask Andrea Bentschneider, German researcher, if she has access to a list of freighter passengers to the U.S..

Minnie's first marriage was 2 Nov 1912 to George Washington Smith of 532 Bloomfield St., Hoboken: age 24; white; electrician; first marriage; born in US; Father, William Smith; Mother, Amanda Hoff. Minnie was: 21 years old; white; first marriage; born in Germany; Father, Julius Winke; Mother, Helene Meyer. The wedding took place at St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Hoboken, Hudson, New Jersey, US. George was living with his older brother John, one of the witnesses, at the time of the marriage. Minnie lived at 216 River St., Hoboken, with her mother and step-father, Helene and Robert and her siblings. By marrying George, Minnie automatically became a US citizen. How much of a role that that fact played in her decision will never be known. What is known is that George showed his true colors soon after his vows. He turned out to be an abusive drunk whose reprehensible lifestyle was long endured by Minnie and her family who supported her, mentally and financially. Minnie began divorce procedings (see copy of divorce in media) in ___. Including a brief reconciliation, the divorce was final in 1927. In the 1920s divorce carried a social stigma. A woman raising a child alone was critisized, shunnned and thrown into destitution unless her family had money. In Minnie's case, her half-sister Martha, who doted on Minnie's daughter Helen, came to Minnie's rescue many times. When the divorce became final, Minnie and Wallie were married, July 30, 1927.

What I remember most about my nana was her gentle ways and her love for me and my brother Richard. She and Dada had to pinch pennies, but their hearts were open and sharing. Each summer from about age 10 until college, I spent a week with them, at first in their railroad apartment and later in their postage stamp-sized apartment in Hoboken, New Jersey. Their railroad apartment opened into the living room. Walking left led to a bedroom, which led to another bedroom, and finally the master bedroom which had natural light and windows. In other words, the bedrooms offered no doors, nor any privacy. Nana or my mom, Helen, once told me that that second bedroom was where my mom spent almost a year in bed, suffering great pain from rhuemetoid arthritis. I don't know any details.
