Does anyone have information on an AKIN in Scipio who married Maria WARNER (in the early 1820's) and died before 1850? They could have had at least two children, Mary AKIN (born about 1825) and Edwin AKIN (born about 1834).
Here is what led me to this point.
In the 1850 census for Scipio, Cayuga County, New York (page 173), there is the following household (dwelling 74/family 76):
William B. WOODIN, age 25, lawyer, born in New York
Mary A. WOODIN, age 20, born in New York
Winnfield S(?) WOODIN, age 6 months, born in New York
Clarissa WARNER, age 74, born in Connecticut, real estate $700
Maria AKIN, age 48, born in Connecticut
The next household (75/77) is the following:
Asahel WARNER, age 50, merchant, born Connecticut, real estate $1900
Lois WARNER, age 41, born in Connecticut
Sarah WARNER, age 9, born in Connecticut
Edward AKIN, age 16, clerk, born in New York
Based on this information (and more which I will mention), I believe that
1. Clarissa (PUNDERSON) WARNER
is the mother of Maria (WARNER) AKIN and Asahel WARNER
2. Maria (WARNER) AKIN
is the mother of Mary A(KIN) WOODIN and Edwin AKIN.
I have found other various bits of information about these people:
Marvin WARNER of South Britain, Conn., married Clarissa PUNDERSON of Roxbury, Conn., May 26, 1796, at the Congregational Church in New Milford, Connecticut
(Bailey,Early Connecticut Marriages, III, 121)
They had three children:
(The source for this mentioned by a number of people is "History of John Warner of 'Increase,' 1635," Hartford, Connecticut, compiled by James Alfred, page 76)
Marvin WARNER died on Mar. 9, 1845 at the age of 73 and is buried in the Bolt's Corner/Warner Cemetery in Scipio, Cayuga County, NY
As an indication that this is the same Marvin WARNER, in the same cemetery we find Abigail PUNDERSON, the (unmarried) sister of Clarissa (PUNDERSON) WARNER, who died shortly after Marvin, on Apr. 20, 1845, at the age of 59.
(see Cayuga County WebGenNYProject for "Bolts Corners Cemetery #168" and "Warner Cemetery #182A")
David WARNER, the eldest son of Marvin and Clarissa (PUNDERSON) WARNER is most likely the
David WARNER who married Sarah "Sally" B RUMSEY
on 14 Sep 1829 in Scipio Center, Cayuga Co, NY
(she was born about 1810 in Southbury, New Haven Co, CT, the daughter of Nathan Rumsey Jr, and Salinda (Sarah) Hinman)
(this information is from the Hinman Family Association website
and he is probably the
David WARNER who died in Scipio on 5 September 1849 at the age of 50
(Cayuga County Deaths 1847-1850,Cayuga County WebGenNYProject)
This seems confirmed by the 1850 census for Scipio, where we find (page 174, dwelling 92, family 96):
Sally WARNER, age 40, born in Connecticut, real estate $1600
Marvin WARNER, age 19, farmer, born in New York
Olive WARNER, age 17, born in New York
Alfred LOVELAND, age 49, farmer, born in Connecticut
Hinman LOVELAND, age 19, farmer, born in New York
(Alfred LOVELAND was Sally (RUMSEY) WARNER's brother-in-law, the widowed husband of her sister Elizabeth RUMSEY (died 1842); Hinman LOVELAND is probably the son of Alfred and Elizabeth)
(I have more information about Sally, Marvin and Olive, if anyone is interested. They were still in Scipio in 1860 but then moved to Wisconsin, where they appear in the 1880 census)
Asahel WARNER, the second son of Marvin and Clarissa (PUNDERSON) WARNER is most likely the Asahel WARNER mentioned above in the 1850 census in Scipio, living next door to Clarissa WARNER.
The WARNERS (Asahel, Lois and Sarah) later moved to Auburn (see the 1860 census), where they are all buried in the Fort Hill Cemetery, together with their other daughter Pearl. I have more information on this family if anyone is interested.
(see the listing for Fort Hill Cemetery at the Cayuga County WebGenNYProject)
The WOODINS (William B., Mary A(KIN)., and "Winnfield", who later seems to have become Edwin) also moved to Auburn (see the 1860 census), where William B. Woodin became County Surrogate. They are also buried in Fort Hill Cemetery, along with Maria AKIN, another son WILLIAM, and some other WOODINS that I haven't identified. Neither Clarissa Warner (died ?) nor Maria AKIN (died 1868) are with the WOODINS in the 1860 census, nor are they with the Asahel WARNER family.
I have some more information on this family if anyone is interested. Sometimes the name is given as WOODEN.
Finally, there is Edwin AKIN.
I have a suspicion that he is the same as the
Edwin AIKEN, born in Cayuga County, NY on 30 July 1833 and died on 22 January in Saginaw, Michigan
married to Emily Mabbett BROWN on 17 October 1859 in Unadilla Forks, Otsego County, New York.
This is information posted by several people apparently taken from "Genealogy of many descendants of Thomas,John and Eleazar Brown of Lynn, by Cyrus Henry Brown, Boston, volume 2, 1915, pp. 168-169 (See the American Genealogical-Biographical Index - AGBI).
Also if you search for the name Edwin ALKEN you will find this information posted in a number of places.
The age would be just right for the Edwin AKIN in the 1850 census.
I did find Emily AKIN in the 1860 census living in Plainfield, Otsego County, NY, with her parents, Charles B. and Catherine BROWN. Edwin is not there - perhaps he was already off in Saginaw. The census was taken on 14 July, when Emily was pretty close to having her first child (Charles M., b. 5 August 1860), so it was no wonder she stayed home!
And Edwin and Emily AIKEN are in Saginaw in the 1870 and 1880 census.
I would be very happy if anyone has any information about the possible marriage of Maria WARNER and Mr. AKIN in Scipio and also about their connection with Mary A. WOODIN and Edwin AKIN - and whether the Edwin AKIN in Scipio in the 1850 census is the same as Edwin AIKEN who married Emily M. BROWN and moved to Saginaw.
