I've been searching for records of a Hester Jane Scofield Garrison or William H. Garrison. Hester was born on August 4, 1820 in New York.The 1850 census shows her married to William H. Garrison and living at the Town of Fishkill with a daughter, Mary E..
Hester died on August 12, 1858 so she does not appear on the next Census...however, William and the children are on the 1860 census in Matteawan.
Any documents (or hints on where I might find these records) would be very much appreciated.
Hester Jane Scofield Garrison b. 04 Aug 1820 in New York d. 12 Aug 1858 m. ??to William H. Garrison
William H. Garrison b. 13 Apr 1817 in New York d. ??? but there is a headstone for him in the Methodist Churchyard in Matteawan.Which I believe is the Church up near St. Luke's. (yes, I've written to them at least twice and have never even gotten the courtesy of a response).There is no death date on the headstone. He is buried there with his second wife and a daughter Lavina.
children of William and Hester:
Mary E. Garrison b. 05 Jun 1848 I have no information beyond the 1860 censis in Matteawan
Fancis Ann Garrison b. 01 Jan 1852 m. William Clarke d. 11 Mar 1918 in Oregon. body was shipped to Roosa & Hignell for burial in Fishkill Rural Cememtery as she lived in Burnesville for most of her life
Lavina P. Garrison b. 28 Sep 1855 d. 28 Apr 1888 buried in the same Methodist Churchyard with her father (although her headstone states that she is the daughter of William and Clorinda - his second wife - this is not the case, she is the daughter of William & Hester)
