I would very much appreciate any information related to Margaretta R Moores, wife of George T Dexter MD.
This much I know about her:
She was born ca. March 1813, in Maine. She married May 3rd, 1834 in Boston George T Dexter MD. They lived for a while in Lancaster NH and then in New York (Bushwick). From four children born, the first three reach adulthood: George T Jr. (1835 –1862); very little is known to me about the two Dexter girls [Sarah E born 1837/8 in Massachusetts and Frances born 1842/3 in New Hampshire].
Margaretta Dexter Moores died Wednesday Sep 24th 1856 in Newburgh, New York. As stated in the New York Herald Tribune (next day) she died of consumption aged 43 years and 6 month and her remains were to be taken to Lancaster, New Hampshire for interment. At this time she was possibly separated from her husband.
Many thanks for your help. Best regards Georg Petroianu [firstname.lastname@example.org]
