Martha Cicott's Parents
I am looking for the parents of Martha Cicott b: 15 Dec 1831 in either Michigan or New York who married first Abner Orcutt and second Franklin Hamilton. Census records list both birth places Michigan and New York.
Her Obit reads as follows:
Maumee Pioneer Dead
Mrs. Frank Hamilton Yeilds to Infirmities of Age
Mrs. Frank Hamilton, a resident of Maumee for more than 70 years, died yesterday at her late home. Her death was due largely to the infirmities of old age. She was born December 15, 1831, in New York state and came to Maumee with her parents when a child of three years. She was married at the age of 16 to Abner Orcutt who died in 1851, leaving two children a son Curtis Orcutt and a daughter, now Mrs. Lottie Lloyd.
In 1856 she was married to Frank Hamilton, who with a son, Frank Hamilton Jr., of Union Oregon, survives her. Four sisters are also living, Mrs. Laura De La Telle of Los Angeles; Mrs. Julia Romaine of San Bernardine; Mrs. C. Bartley of Arbor Spring, Mich.; and Mrs. Mary Howe of Carleton, Mich.
The funeral will be held Wednessday afternoon from the M. E. Church in Maumee, the Rev. Eli Molter to officiate. The Relief Corps will also take part in the services. Interment will be in Riverside.
In a letter left by my great grandfather Franklin Lincoln Hamilton son of Martha Cicott, he wrote:
My Mother married a Welch man, a carpenter, and from that union there was two children, James Curtis, and Lottie Orcutt. Mr Orcutt, died in 1855 and Mother lived single till 1857 when she met my Father, they were married and I am the only child from that union. I was born October 1, 1860 at Maumee, Ohio.
It also states that Martha was the third child of two boys and twelve girls born to her parents near Trenton, Michigan, and that Martha's parents both died in 1845 during a disease outbreak.
Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
