We’re confident that this document is referring to my ancestor Thomas Evans.  Both Watson L Hoskins and Newell Matson were in the jewelry business – Mr Watson was a clerk in Mr Matson’s store in the late 1850s and Newell Watson who lived in Owego was later described as a “well-known Chicago wholesale jeweler” .   Thomas Evans listed his occupation as a jeweler in the 1860 census and and was working for N. Matson in Chicago selling Waltham Watches in 1874.

We’re hoping to visit Tioga NY in the future to review earlier editions of the newspapers of the time to see if we can learn more about Thomas.

Jane (Kilburn) Evans (1833-1874) – wife of Thomas Evans (1824-1911) who Lived in Owego, NY 1855-1865, then Moved to Illinois (Blog 25)

We have found the following information about Jane (Kilburn) Evans:

Her tombstone:  The two tombstones for Jane M Evans (one older and one newer) at the Lombard Cemetery in Lombard, Illinois list her birth date as Sept 8, 1833 and a death date of Sept 23, 1874.  The newer one lists Jane on the same stone as Thomas.  Images can be found at FindAGrave.

The 1855 New York census of Owego, County of Tioga shows Thos Evans, Jr, age 30, born in England with wife Jane M Evans, age 24, born in Oswego?, and son Alfred who we believe is actually their son Arthur, age 1, born in Tioga.  The census also tells us that Thomas and Jane moved to Owego around 1853 (two years before the census was taken.)

1855 NY Census Thomas Evans Jane Evans Alfred Evans

The 1860 Federal Census of Owego, Tioga, NY dated August 31 shows Thomas Evans, age 36, a jeweler with personal property valued at $400, born in England, Jane Evans, age 27, born in N Y, Arthur T, age 6, Stella, age 4, and Maggie E, age 1.

1860 Census Thomas Evans Jane Evans

The 1865 New York census of Owego taken on June 13th shows Thomas Evans, age 40, born in England, a merchant, Jane his wife, age 32, born in Oswego?, Arthur T, age 11, born in Tioga, Stella, age 8 born in Tioga, Maggie E, age 5, born in Tioga.  We think the last name is Donna who was born on June 4th and believe her name is crossed off, possibly because the census reflected the population as of June 1st.

1865 census Thomas Evans Jane Evans

We haven’t found a this family in the 1870 census records but the 1880 census record shows Thomas, a widow is listed with or next door to the above children in Lombard, Illinois.  Thomas is living with his daughter’s family in Hyde Park in the 1900 census which also shows he immigrated in 1834. The 1910 census shows he immigrated in 1835.

Death records of Jane’s children Arthur T Evans, Margaret Elizabeth (Evans) Patrick, and Donna Lovilla (Evans) Shackford all list their mother as Jane Kilburn born in New York. We don’t know when or where Stella Stella Jane (Evans) Towne died.

We’re still looking for:

A birth record for Jane.

Jane mentioned in the 1850 census.  We’ve found a few Jane Kilburn’s but nothing to connect those specific Jane Kilborn’s with this Jane.

A marriage record for Thomas and Jane.

Any information about Jane’s death – a death record or mention in the newspaper or information about the newer gravestone….

And we have looked but sometimes someone else can find documents we just can’t seem to find.

We’re pretty confident that the above information shows that Jane Kilburn who was born in New York was the wife of Thomas Evans of Owego NY and Lombard, IL, that she lived in New York and most likely died in or near Dupage, Illinois where she was buried.

We have noticed that a few individuals who use Ancestry are listing Thomas’ wife as a different Jane – Jane Bartram, that some show the marriage in England, and reflect him as living in England at the same time the above census records show Thomas and Jane in New York.  While Thomas could have had two wives named Jane, we suspect there was a different Thomas Evans who married a Jane Bartram and that Jane  probably has different birth and death dates than those shown for this Jane.  We hope the above information helps these folks to update the data they have shared in Ancestry as there are many other folks who may copy this incorrect information they see.

Wednesday’s Wedding – In 1837, Sabine Dutoit marries James Lewis Wuichet in Vevay, Indiana (Blog 24)

Sabine Dutoit, the daughter of Charles Eugene Louis Gabriel and Lydia (Detra) Dutoit born in Indiana in 1819.  She was only eighteen on April 30, 1837 when she married thirty-five year old James Lewis (also spelled Louis) Wuichet, a well known stone cutter in Vevay, Indiana.

Marriage Record James Lewis Wuichet and Sabine DutoitSwitzerland County ss:
Wuichet
&
Dutoit
Be it remembered that on the 29th
day of April AD 1857 I Edward Patton Clerk of the
Circuit Court of said County Granted James Lewis Wuichet
and Sabin Dutoit Marriage Licence and afterwards, to wit
on the 1st day of May 1857 Elisha Golay filed the following certificate
viz, State of Indiana Switzerland County ss:
I Elisha Golay one of the associate Judges in and for said
County do hereby certify that on the 30th day of April last
I joined together in the holy State of Matrimony James
Louis Wuichet and Sabine Dutoit as Husband and wife
pursuant to a License if and from the Office of the Clerk
of the Circuit Court of said County in witness whereof
I have hereunto to set my hand this first day of May
1837 – Elisha Golay

By 1840 the family had moved to Dayton with their son Eugene.  James continued to work as a stone cutter while Sabine raised a large family living for part of the time at 34 Logan St.   The family did quite well financially listing real estate valued at $10,000 in 1860 and $15,000 in 1870.

One of Sabine’s obituaries was published in Dayton Daily Journal on May 18th

Obituary Sabine Wuichet Daily Herald and Empire May 13 1875MRS SABINE WUICHET, mother of
Charles Wuichet Esq of Dayton,
died at her residence this morning,
after a lingering illness, in her 56th
year She was the mother of ?
children, of whom six sons and two
daughters live to mourn her loss and
cherish her memory

Sabine was buried near her husband at the Woodland Cemetery in Dayton.  Pictures of the two of them are available at FindAGrave.  Like her husband, Sabine wrote a will.  She left all her assets to her two daughters unless they married at which time the assets would be equally divided amid all the children.

CHILDREN:

Eugene Wuichet (1839-1916) – married Helen Blanche LaRose, my second great grandfather

John Mark Wuichet (1841-1874) – worked as a coppersmith

Albert Wuichet (1846-????) – listed as age 14 in John’s family in the 1860 census – perhaps he is a child from a different family?

Frank Wuichet (1850-1942) – lumber manufacturer; married Mary Hannah LaRose

Sunday’s Obituary – James Louis Wuichet (1802-1872), a respected citizen of Dayton, Ohio (Blog 22)

James Louis Wuichet, also known as Jean Jacques Louis Wuichet, John Louis Wuichet, Lewis Wuichet,  J. L. Wuichet and with multiple versions of the spelling of Wuichet was born March 4, 1802 in Switzerland to Jean Mark and Marguerite (Bouzon) Wuichet.  He became a well known professional stone dresser working in multiple European countries and Russia before moving to Vevay, Illinois where he met his future wife Sabine Dutoit.  They married on April 30, 1837.

James Louis and his new wife moved to Dayton, Ohio, an area full of exceptional stone found in many new quarries.  James worked as a stone mason involved in many projects in the local area to include the St Peters in Chains in Cincinnatti, both the Old and the new Dayton Courthouse, and the Woodlawn Cemetery receiving vault.  He and his wife raised seven children, the youngest still in high school when he died at the age of 70 on September 13, 1872.  He was buried at the Woodland Cemetery in Dayton which has an excellent description of many of his projects on their Facebook page.

James wrote his will on March 18, 1868 which went to probate two weeks after his death on October 1, 1872.  He left 1/3 of his estate to his wife Sabine who lived until May 17, 1875.  The rest of his estate was to be divided amid his children after the youngest reached majority.

Thanks to the Dayton Metro Library, we have obtained this copy of James’ obituary which was published a day later in the Dayton Daily Journal.

Obituary James Louis Wuichet

Dayton Daily Journal, Sept 14, 1872

Death of an Old Citizen – The ven-
erable James Louis Wuichet, one of the
oldest widely known and throughly re-
spected citizens of Dayton, was pros-
trained with sudden illness yesterday
morning, and died in a short time. Mr.
Wuichet was a native of one of the
French cantons of Switzerland. He em-
igrated to Vevay, Indiana, in 1833, and
in 1837 removed to Dayton, where he
was immediately employed in his trade
of stone cutting, his first job, being the
cutting of the stone steps of the Third
Street Presbyterian Church, of the old
blue school house, our informant isnot
certain which. He proscuted his
business successfully until 1865, when
he retired. His wife and nine
children survive him. Seven of his child-
ren are boys and two girls, all grown
but one lad now at the High School, and
all reside in Dayton excepting Frederick,
whose home is at Syracuse, N. Y. And
we may add that all of the chidlren dem-
mand the respect of those who know
them. Deceased was a man of great en-
ergy of character and possessed many
traits which won for him the esteem of
his associates. The time of his funeral
will be announced Monday.

James is my third great grandfather & comes up on a DNA circle with three others on Ancestry.com

Wedding Wednesday – William Mullett, my 3rd great grandfather married Eleanor Elizabeth Dulley Oct 6, 1806 (Blog 21)

Here’s all we know about William Mullett, my third great grandfather:

William Mullett who’s name is written as Gulielmo in Latin married Elizabeth Dulley in the Holy Cross Catholic Church in Boston, Massachusetts on October 6, 1806.  Attendees were Edward McCarthy, Andora Hoar, Margarita Lonargan and Jacobo Hiler.  Rev Francis A Matignon officiated.  The marriage was recorded at the Catholic Church and

Marriage Record William Mullat and Eleanor Dulley

Wm Mullet
Eleanor
Dulley Die sexti Octobris matrimonio gruetis einst Gulielmo Mullat
et Eleanor Dulley; testibus Eduardo McCarthy, Andora Hoar,
Margarita Lonargan et Jacobo Hiler John Cheverus

in 1903 was transcribed into official records of Boston:

William Mullet m Eleanor Dulley A Volume of Records Relating to the Early History of Boston, Containing Boston Marriages From 1752 to 1809 (Boston- Municipal Printing Office, 1903), pag

He’s listed on the Sept 4, 1808 baptismal records of Mary Ann Mullett who later married Walter Moore Leman.  Attendees were Edward Murphy and Eleanor Landregan

William is listed on the birth record of Edward Mullet who was born on August 11, 1810 and died on October 26, 1811.  Attendees at the baptism were Edward McCarthy and Francis A Matigan

He’s listed on the November 1, 1812 baptismal record of Catherine Mullett, my second great-grandmother who was born on October 10, 1812. Sponsors were James Devereau and Catherine Dulley.  She married William Brown Shackford Nov 27, 1837.

William probably died before September 1818 as his wife Eleanor Mullett married Thomas Rowland – witnesses were William Donnelly, Catharine Hyde, and Daniel Dulley.

We plan to continue to research this family line to see if we can learn more about William — perhaps his death is recorded in an official record or the newspaper?  Perhaps guardianship papers were signed as Mary Ann and Catherine would have been under ten when William died.  Perhaps he is related to those who attended his wedding or the baptisms of his children.  Perhaps he was older than Eleanor and served in the Revolutionary War?

Sunday’s Obituary – Eugene Wuichet (1839-1915) (Blog 20)

MEMORIAL TO EUGENT WUICHET, Lumber World Review, Jan 25, 1916 Photo

Lumber World Review, Jan 25, 1916

Eugene Wuichet, the son of Jean Jacques Louis and Sabine (Dutoit) Wuichet was born in Dayton, Ohio on Jan 20, 1839.  He followed his father’s occupation of stone mason and then began working in the lumber business under Alexander Gebhart.

Eugene married Helen Blanche LaRose on October 15, 1863 and then on May 2, 1864 enlisted in the 131st Infantry Regiment as a Private where he served until August 25, 1864.  He then returned to Dayton where he became a partner of Alex Gebhart and the President of the lumber company.   He became a partner in the business, President and Director of multiple Dayton banks, and was involved in multiple charitable organizations.

Eugene died in Dayton on December 18, 1915 and was buried in the Woodland Cemetery.  His obituary was shared in multiple lumber magazines describing him as one of the most lovable men in the lumber trade with a strong faith in God and man.  We’ve selected one of the many obituaries that appeared in multiple lumber journals, and included the others as sources.

EUGENE WUICHET

The death of Eugene Wuichet, one of the lead-
ing lumberman of Dayton, O., and father of Louis
Wuihet, the prominent Chicago lumber dealer, oc-
curred at Dayton, December 18. Mr. Wuichet, who
was seventy-seven years of age, was the son of
J.L. Wuichet, who emigrated to this country from
France in the early part of the nineteenth cen-
tury. [Note:  Believe Eugene’s father was actually born in the French speaking part of Switzerland, jsp]. As a youth Mr. Wuichet assisted his father
in the stone-cutting trade, but later became con-
nected with Alexander Gebhart and continued
with that concern from the age of seventeen
years, finally becoming a partner and later con-
ducting the business which was operated as the
Gebhart-Wuichet Lumber Co. Aside from his lum-
ber interests, Mr. Wuichet was president of the
Merchants National Bank of Dayton, vice-presi-
dent of the Mercantile Home and Savings Asso-
ciation, and a director of the Dayton Savings &
Trust Co. He is survived by his widow and six
children, three sons, Louis Wuichet, of Chicago,
Edward and Alexander Wuichet, of Dayton; Mrs.
Homer Ireland, of Dayton; Mrs. Harvey Edwards,
of Chicago, and Mrs. D. P. McLelland, of Chicago.
Eugene Wuichet was one of the most popular
lumbermen of the Buckeye state and his reputation
was of the highest character He was prominent
in association circles and his advice and counsel
were frequently sought by lumbermen in all walks
of life. His loss to the lumber trade is irreparable.
