Philomela GARRETT (1795–1849), wife of James GARRETT, Oneida Co., NY
I am looking for information on Philomela (Thurston) NEWELL GARRETT (1795–1849), a resident of Oneida County in the 1830’s and 1840’s. Philomela, her first husband Samuel NEWELL, and her second husband James GARRETT, were missionaries in America’s first foreign mission in Bombay, India. Having been widowed twice, Philomela returned to the US and moved to Utica around 1833 with her two children, Harriet NEWELL and Samuel James GARRETT. While there she was involved with the Utica Maternal Association. She later moved to Whitestown, and in 1846 she lived in Whitesboro.
James GARRETT (1797–1831) was born in Trenton, Oneida Co., and grew up in Utica.
