PostPosted: Thu Apr 15, 2010 8:47 am    Post subject: Death of my great grandfather Reply with quote

I have been trying to work on my mom's family who are mostly early American settlers. I was astounded to discover my great grandfather Charles Marion Dewey in a 1900 census. The reason I was astounded was everything I have (written by his son, my grandfather) says he died in 1899. My grandfather was a CPA and very detail oriented so I really do not understand. I can find nothing on his death anywhere. I am hoping someone can. For reference his 1900 census is here Charles Marion Dewey was born on August 6, 1856 in Conkin, NY, moved to New Jersey for a few years, then moved to St. Louis. I have his death in 1899 (which is clearly wrong) in Ames, Iowa. My mom told me he committed suicide. Can someone help me find something? Thanks.

Cathy, he may have been recorded on the census but there is a notation of numbers on his name (12-2). Maybe he would show up on the Federal Mortality Schedule for 1899 or 1900. I have found several members that way.

WOW Thanks! That's amazing! I have something at home that says he was a Foreman so maybe the suicide story is wrong! Perhaps it was an accident. If it was there may have been something in the newspapers about it. I was looking in Ames, Iowa, not St. Louis. I'll check Footnote again tonight. Thanks so much!!

Glad I could help. By the way, you know the fumes of Carbolic Acid are dangerous. The location of his death could be a clue as to whether he did himself in or it was an accident at work.

A notation on the location says "in a pasture west of Ben____ ave. between _____________ and ____________".

Being found in a pasture is not good news. It could be the family story of his death could be true.

Cathy -
I believe the town your g grandfather was born in is Conklin, near Binghamton and the Pennsylvania line.

www.townofconklin.org/

Not death info but possibly of interest to you in the future.

Thanks qnana! I am actually back pretty far. My Dewey's are stuck at 1630 or so but some of my maternal lines go back to the 1100's! His death was the mystery. I am curious how the Dewey's of Westfield, Massachusetts ended up in Conklin, NY though so perhaps that site will be a good starting point!

Thanks Lilbees! I missed that note. I think you are right - the story my Mom told me of suicide is probably correct. Mom always said she was told her dad was never the same after he found his dad. We both assumed it took place in their home so this really tells me a lot. I am still surprised that my grandfather had the date so wrong but perhaps he was hiding it intentionally. Mom did not know about the suicide until her Aunt told her so it was probably a secret - back then there would have been a stigma attached to a suicide.
