The family listed after Levi and Lydia Varney in the 1880 census of Lowell, Maine is mispelled "Honey." It is, in fact, Levi and Lydia's daughter, Abbie E[leanor], and her husband, Charles W(illiam) Hovey. Their children are Linnie M(ay), Herbert H(arold), Annie D(orothy) and Eva F. This family moved to Bangor after Levi died in 1880. They can be found in the Bangor City Directory through the 1880s. Charles and Abbie eventually divorced in 1893, after Charles abandoned them in Bangor. Abbie and Annie can be found living in Spencer, Mass in 1900 census. Abbie Hovey remarried Marriner Hillman of Bowscawan, NH. Annie Hovey married Harry Diedling of Catskill NY (name mispelled "Dudley" in census index). Lydia can be found in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census records living with her daughters and their families in Massachussets and New Hampshire (Delia (Bradbury), Eva (Hathway) and Abbie (Hillman). Her obituary is posted elsewhere in this forum (Varney Family Forum). Oddly enough, Levi, Jr. may have changed his name to Charles L., as later obituaries (see other posts) list Charles L. as surviving son. Census records show Charles L. Varney in Boston, and the age is correct. No Levi Varney of that age exists in census records after 1880, and Lydia's obit lists him as living. Marci can be found in 1900, 1910 and 1920 census records living in Enfield. First married to an Ellis, by whom she had two children, Grace and John, then married to Charles Priest, with whom she had a son named Haller/Halter or Hollis (hard to read). Charles Hovey may have remarried an Alice (Dyer) Dudley. Maine Archives have a record for such a marriage, and the 1920 census shows a Charles W. and Alice M. Hovey (mispelled "Harry" in index) living in Millinocket. Charles died at the home of his daughter Annie Diedling in Catskill NY in 1928. Herbert's marriage record in 1897 shows Charles' place of birth as "Boyce Town" (Boiestown) New Brunswick. Herbert H. Hovey established himself in Milo (see other posts).
