TIMELINE THURSDAY ~ HARRIET CARPENTER NEW YORK to MINNESOTA 1811 - 1905
For Time Line Thursday I am continuing with Harriet Carpenter my third great grandmother who I posted on earlier today.
1811 December 13 Harriet is born to Harmon and Phebe (Chrisman) Carpenter in Rome, New York
1820 August 7th Harriet is living at home with Herman Carpenter. There are 9 people in the home 2 males 10 to 15 years, 1 male 26 to 44 years and 1 over 45 years old. There are 3 females under 10 years, 1 who is 16 to 25 years old, and 1 who is 26 to 44 years old. 4 persons are engaged in agriculture and 1 is a foreigner not naturalized.
1830 Harriet marries Daniel Christman in Oneida county, New York. Not sure if he is a cousin or not.
1831 Son David Chauncey Christman is born name later has Carpenter added to it
1833 daughter Monica Christman is born New York
1835 son David is adopted by Harriet's father Harmon and mother Phebe New York
1836 or 1837 Death of husband Daniel Christman Rome, Oneida County, New York

1839 Son Abram Jackson is born New York

1851 son Welcome Wallace is born New York
1857 August 1 Harriet's mother Phoebe dies in Rome New York
1857 December 5th Harmon's will says that Harriet Carpenter is to receive Ten dollars payable to her by her son David Chrisman now called David Carpenter 2nd following the death of her farther Harmon Carpenter
1858 Husband Levi is supposed to have died

1860 July 28 census in Rome New York has Harriet living on a small farm with sons Fairfax age 12 and Welcome age 9. Son David now known as Carpenter is living next door with his wife Lovina on land inherited from Harmon's will.
Interesting note is that there is a Fairfax Anderson living with a Abraham Christman and wife Betsey and their family this is Harriet's sister and brother in law. That census was taken the 22nd of June, 1860 and they were living in Oriskany, New York. Fairfax is 11 years old. I think this is the same Fairfax and he is counted twice in this census.

1905 December 5th Harriet dies in Zumbro Wabasha county, Minnesota. She is buried next to 3rd husband Charles at Pleasant Prairie ( Dale) Cemetery. I have seen her tombstone. Other family members are buried in same cemetery.
This is a good start for my time line on Harriet much more needs to be found and added.
