    Marriage 1 James Roult b: EST 2 JUL 1773
    • Married: 11 NOV 1803 2 5 4
    • Note:
      The estimated birth dates in this family are very speculative. I'm carrying them just as clues to finding more on the family.

      The 1803 marriage date from Ross County Marriages doesn't fit with the suppositions made in the estimating of Lucy's birth, and thus the rest of these dates. Something here isn't right.

      Text: JOHN ANDERSON (Marion Township) is a native of Hampshire County, Va., and born March 4, 1803, the son of James and Priscilla (House) Anderson, of German, English and Scotch lineage, but natives of Virginia. Having married in 1800, they moved to Fairfield County, Ohio, in 1806, April 6, where they resided until 1833. They then removed to Clinton County, Ind., where they remained until death. They had eleven children, five surviving-John, Mahala, Elizabeth, James M. and Hiram. The deceased were Samuel, Rebecca, Ruth, Priscilla, Thomas J. and Levi H. The father was born February 17, 1768, and died October 25, 1844; the mother was born in 1778, and, died August 15, 1847. Our subject, having obtained a pioneer education, married, January 20, 1829, Martha Roult, a daughter of James and Abigail (Parks) Roult, of Protestant Irish lineage, and nine children were born in this family, five living Francis M., born February 12, 1830; Minerva J., November 24, 1831; Susan R., September 29, 1837; Nancy E., October 1, 1844, and Margaret A., October 14, 1846.

His third marriage was consummated April 24, 1851, with Fannie N. Hunter, the widow of Zadoc Hunter, and the daughter of Cornelius and Hannah (Holmes) Kortwright of German and English descent respectively, but natives of Pennsylvania and Connecticut severally. She is the mother of five children, two living-Saloma, wife of I. B. Etherton, and Hannah K., wife of Henry Fulwider.

He owns 131 acres of fine land and two valuable town lots in Marion, where he has been a resident since 1836. For twenty years he was Trustee of his township.

      JOHN B. HINDS (Claridon Township) was born in Claridon Township, October 23, 1841), the only son of Thomas and Ann (Bostock) Hinds, who emigrated from their native place, Lincolnshire, England, in childhood. Thomas was born in 1817 and was the sixth son (had three sisters). He came to Claridon Township in 1822, and was married to the above lady in 1839, in Richland County, Ohio. Their union was blessed with two children-John B. and James H., who died at the age of twenty-one years. He married, for his second wife, Rebecca A. Carpenter, and eight children were born to them, seven surviving-Charles W., David C., George G., Mary A., Elizabeth A Catherine and Rose A. When aged one year, Susie died. Thomas Hinds was an active member of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Claridon, and a liberal supporter to all benevolent and charitable causes. Our subject was educated at the district school.

    4. Title: Age estimates from 1830 census data
      Abbrev: JimB's estimates
      Author: Jim Burrows
      Text: <div><pre>
      The ages for this family are all estimated from the 1830 census data.

      I've assumed that all of the young people in Gideon Comstock's household are Lucy's children. This means she has children who are at least 15, and that Abigail is a grandmother. I therefore put Abigail at the old end of her range and did the same with her youngest child. I put the oldest Comstock children at the low end of their range (15), and then put her birth about half way between her mother and oldest child.

      Age Birth Year
      Name Range Range Married Year Age Comment
      James 50-60 1770-1780 1773 57 (57.5 @ d. in 1831)
      +Abigail 40-50 1780-1790 1780 50
      Lucy 30-40 1790-1800 1798 32 1/2 between mother+child
      Margaret 20-30 1800-1810 m.1825 1806 24 age 18 @ m. in 1825, 41 @ d. in 47
      Martha 21 1809 1809 21
      Charles 15-20 1810-1815 1811 19 2 year spacing
      Susanah 15-20 1810-1815 m.1832 1813 17 age 19 @ m. in 1832
      John 10-15 1815-1820 m.1838 1817 13 age 21 @ m. in 1838
      Sabina 5-10 1820-1825 m.1838 1820 10 age 18 @ m. in 1838

      It's likely that either Lucy's age (and everything based on it) is wrong or that James and Abigail are not the couple mentioned in the Ross County Marriages.
