On this day 5th of December 1908 my third great grandmother Harriet Carpenter Christman Anderson Cocagne passed away. Harriet was born the 13th of December 1811 to Harmon and Phebe Christman Carpenter.
Harriet's first husband was Daniel Christman who probably was some relative of Phebe. Harriet had two children with Daniel, Daniel Christman and Monica. Daniel went to live with his grandfather and his name was changed to Carpenter. Daniel passed away and Harriet then married Levi Anderson who is my third great grandfather.
Harriet married Levi Anderson the 26th of August 1837 and together they had 7 children, Betsy my great great grandmother, Abram, Phebe, William, George, Fairfax, and Welcome. Levi either passed away or they separated or divorced and then Levi died. This is a mystery still to us. We know he died somewhere around 1858. Have not been able to find him in the 1860 census.
Some time between 1860 and 1870 Harriet moved to Zumbro Falls, Minnesota with her sons.
Harriet third and last husband was Charles Cocagne. They were married the 24 of September 1872. They are buried together at Pleasant Prairie Cemetery, Zumbro Falls, Minnesota.
Rest in peace Grandma Harriet.
