MARACHE

1.  Theodore L. Marache was born 1789 in France and died before 1880. He married Eleanore Waflard. Eleanore was born about 1802 in France and died after 1880.

Theodore is mentioned as being an early resident of Morehouse, Hamilton County, having settled there about 1833-1834. The 1840 Federal census lists him as head of household with 3 males and 4 females. Of the 7 persons, one is engaged in agriculture, one in manufacture and trades and 1 scholar. Members of the Marache family may have gone back and forth between Albany or New York City and Morehouse, as they are not found as a family unit consistently living in Morehouse. The 1850 census shows Theodore, a 61-year-old farmer, with his two youngest daughters. The 1860 census shows Theodore and Eleanore. The Marache surname does not appear on the 1870 Morehouse census but the 1880 lists Eleanore Marache, a 79-year-old widow living in the home of Mrs. Sarah Irving.

Theodore L. and Eleanore (Waflard) Marache had the following children:

MOREHOUSE

1.  Andrew Morehouse, son of David & Jane Belding Morehouse, b. 13 March 1805.  Christened at Spencertown, NY.  He was married on 10 Sept. 1828 to Sarah Ann Wilmurt, an orphan with money, b. 7 Feb 1808.  Andrew purchased a great deal of land in the Wilmurt (Herkimer county), Morehouseville and Piseco areas and tried to resell it to potential settlers.  He moved his family circa 1833 to Morehousville after building a home, sawmill and other dwellings of necessity for a new settlement.  But in the late 1850s he had left the area and is no longer found on the census for Morehouse, while his daughter, Josephine and her family, remained for a while longer.

Andrew is found in the Oneida County Poorhouse in Rome, NY in the 1880 census.

Their children were:

1.1.  Virginia W. was born 1 Oct. 1829.
1.2.  Josephine B. was born 8 July 1831.  She married Havilla Winchell.  He was born about 1819.  Havilla was the Morehouseville postmaster in 1859, having taken over the reigns of the political arena from his father-in-law, Andrew Morehouse.  He servedas a wagoner in Company F, 97th NY Volunteers from 26 Nov 1861 to 26 Nov 1864.  He also served as Town Supervisor, 1853-1866, with Basile Bennet appointed to serve the town during Havilla's absence in 1864.  Havilla and his family left Morehouse in the mid to late 1860s and is not found again on the census records for the town.  He is buried in New Forest cemetery in Utica, NY.

Havilla Winchell and Josephine B. Morehouse had at least the following children:

1.2.1.  Amelia Winchell was born 26 Feb 1849 in Morehouse.
1.2.2.  Charles H. Winchell was born about 1855.

1.3.  Elizabeth was born 8 Oct. 1835.

Further Family Notes:

"Morehouses were among my ancestors including Samuel Morehouse of Herkimer County. Samuel's daughter, Margaret Morehouse was my g-grandmother having married my g-grandfather, Joseph Balch, of Frankfort Center, Herkimer County. I didn't know her but I recall my grandmother Charlotte Balch, wife of Warren Balch (a son of Joseph & Margaret Morehouse Balch) telling me that Andrew Morehouse was a relative.  She said that Andrew was an early settler of  Morehouseville & that he was a land speculator. She also said that he died a pauper (guess sales were poor) perhaps in Rome, NY. The Morehouses came from Fairfield County, CT  to Dutchess/Ulster County areas and then to Hebron, NY. Some then apparently came to  the counties of Warren, Hamilton & Herkimer. The moves from Hebron seemed to have occurred after the Revolutionary War - perhaps as a result of land given or sold to veterans. I can't give you documentation for Andrew but perhaps this hearsay will be helpful."  - Copyright © 2000: Beverly Price, All Rights Reserved
