BOUQUIN

1.  Francis Bouquin, born about 1820, married Justine.  She was born about 1815.

The History of Hamilton County says “Swiss born Francis Bouquin had resided at Morehouse since earliest days” and “F. Bourgain was one of the community residents using the Morehouse post office in 1835”. However, he does not appear on a Morehouse census until 1850. Francis Bouquin and his wife, Justine, were both born about 1815 in Switzerland/France.  (In the 1850 and 1860 Morehouse census they both give Switzerland as their place of birth. In 1870, France is given. The birthplace of their first 3 children is given as New York in 1850, Switzerland in 1860 and France in 1870.)  Francis gives his occupation as farmer. The Bouquin family can be found on the Morehouse censuses from 1850 to 1870.

Children of Francis and Justine Bouquin are:

1.1.  Louis Bouquin was born 1844. He enlisted for Civil War service 20 November 1861 at Morehouse and was mustered in private, Co. G, 97th NY Inf. He was promoted to corporal 1 January 1864 and re-enlisted as a veteran 14 February 1864. Louis was mustered out 18 July 1865 at Balls Cross Roads, VA. The 1870 Morehouse census shows him (Lewis Bourquin) as a farmer owning property valued at $500.00, living in the household of William Morrison. In 1900 he was a border in the home of John P. Harris, Hope Twp., Herkimer Co., NY. At this time he is a single laborer and reports having immigrated in 1855.
1.2.  Julia Bourquin was born 1846. The 1860 Morehouse census lists her as a servant in the home of Havilla Winchell. Julia may have married Joseph Durett who is living with wife, Julia, next door to Francis Bouquin on the 1870 census.
1.3. Louise Bouquin was born 1847.  She appears to have married Peter Begraph and was living in Utica in the 1880 census (page 320C) with her sister "Della Bouquin" age 22.
1.4. Sophia Bouquin was born 15 March 1849 in Morehouse, Hamilton County, New York

1.7. Augustus Bouquin was born about 1857 in <Morehouse> NY

CUMMING

1.  John Cumming was one of Morehouse’s first settlers, having purchased land in the fall of 1832 from Andrew K. Morehouse and his partners. He purchased 100 acres on lot 15 in 1832 and 50 acres on lot 8 in 1833. In 1835 Mr. Cumming was named one of the Town constables, though he was not included in the list of community residents using the new Post Office in that year. John Cumming built the first gristmill in town in 1843 located on Four Mile Creek, south of the main highway. In 1844 he was one of three trustees of school district 3. “In 1869, a contract was let for a bridge across West Canada Creek, called the John Cumming bridge in honor of the town’s oldest living first-settler.”

John Cumming, born 1801 in Scotland and his wife, Mary, born 1793 in New York, are first found on a federal Morehouse census in 1850 where his occupation is listed as lumbering. In 1860 and 1870, farming is given as his occupation. The 1880 census lists John, a 79-year-old widower with ‘gentleman’ as his occupation, living in the home of his son-in-law and daughter, Adolphe and Elizabeth ‘Helen’ Raux.

John died 27 Jul 1883, aged 82 yrs and 19 days.  Mary was born 8 Dec 1792 and died 2 Sep 1876.  They are both buried in Ohio cemetery, Herkimer county, NY.

HANSON

1.  Sylvester Hanson:  Although Sylvester Hanson is not listed among the very first residents of Morehouse, he and his family had settled there by 1840 and for the next 10 years appears to have been quite active in the town. In 1841 the town meeting was held in his home. He served as town clerk from 1841 - 1843 and as town supervisor from 1844 - 1852. “To ensure smoother workings of government, the supervisor, Sylvester Hanson, was to secure a suitable desk at a cost not to exceed $12.00 and ultimately obliged by paying $9.00.”  In 1843 he was commissioned to build a bridge near the home of Jonathan Tifft, and in 1844 Mr. Hanson served on a committee charged with “selecting a suitable spot for a burying ground.” He appears on only the 1840 and 1850 Morehouse censuses. According to the 1850 census Sylvester Hanson was born about 1809 in New York. He gives farming as his occupation. His wife, Rebecca, was born about 1811 in New York.

In 1860 they are living in La Grange, Walworth, WI.

Sylvester and Rebecca Hanson had at least these 2 children:

1.1.  Horatio Hanson was born 24 February 1833 [or 1823?] in Hunter, Greene County, New York and married about 1859 Jennie. She was born July 1838 in Vermont. In 1880 they were living in Sterling, Madison Co., Montana where he gives his occupation as placer miner.  In 1900 they were living in Pony, Madison Co., Montana where he gives his occupation as landlord.

Horatio and Jennie had 8 children with only 3 surviving in 1900.  Two of these three children were Nettie and Retta who are found in the same household.  The other children listed below were found on the 1880 census.

1.1.1.  Cora Hanson was born about 1866
1.1.2.  George S. Hanson was born Dec 1867, in Montana.  He married Ida A. Nelson about 1896 and was living in Pony, Madison Co., Montana in 1900.  They had one daughter born by this time.
1.1.3.  Flora Hanson was born about 1872
1.1.4.  Nettie R. Hanson was born December 1875 in Montana
1.1.5.  Retta E. Hanson was born April 1877 in Montana

1.2.  Sara E. Hanson was born about 1840 in NY

It certainly appears that there may be more children of Sylvester's who were born in Montana, but as I haven't researched all the census records there, I have no proof of this supposition.

SCHALL

1.  Gustavus C.  (Joseph C.) Schall was born about 1809 in Saxony, Germany and apparently died between 1870 and 1880. He married 16 September 1851 in Morehouse, Hamilton Co., New York, Mary Wessel. George Duran, Methodist Episcopal Church pastor, performed the ceremony. Mary was born about 1821 in Wertemburgh, Germany and apparently died between 1892 and 1900. Mary is first found on the 1850 Morehouse census living in the home of William Kreckler. Joseph gives his occupation as laborer in 1860 and as farmer in 1870.

Joseph C. and Mary (Wessell) Schall had one child:

1.1.  Jacobina Amelia Schall was born 1852 in <Morehouse> New York and died in 1925. She married about 1880, George Hurter. (See Hurter bio).  There is some question as to whether or not she is the daughter of Mary.  In the 1900 census she states that her date of birth is Jun 1849 and she is listed as a step daughter in the 1880 census.  However her age is 8, 18, 28 in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 censuses, respectively, which would give her date of birth as 1852 and thus a daughter of Mary's, as we've listed here.

WINCHELL

1.  Havilla Winchell was born 1820 in New York and died 23 Feb 1888. He married about 1843, Josephine Morehouse who was born 8 July 1830 in New York to Andrew K. and Sarah Ann (Wilmurt) Morehouse. She died 9 Apr 1905.  They are both buried in the New Forest Cemetery, Utica, NY.

Although Havilla only lived in Morehouse for about 20 years, he was a driving force in the town for most of that time primarily through managing the affairs of his father-in-law, the ‘founding father’ of Morehouse. Havilla succeeded Mr. Morehouse as postmaster 7 March 1855. He served as town supervisor from 1853 – 1864 and from 1865-1866. During his short absence from his supervisory position, Havilla served in the Civil War. Having enlisted (age 42) November 1861 in Morehouse, he was mustered in as Wagoner, Co. F, 97th Infantry in 1864. Between 1861 and 1864 several town meetings were held at his home and he served on a committee to attend to enlistment matters concerning problems with bounties and quotas in the town. In both the 1850 and 1860 Morehouse censuses Havilla gives farming as his occupation. Shortly after his last term as supervisor the family left town for good.

In 1880 Havilla and Josephine are living in Utica and his occupation is that of a grocer.  They are found living at 53 Broad St., Utica, NY in the 1887 thru 1890 city directories.  In 1891 Josephine is listed as widow of Havilla in the city directory.  Josephine was living in Utica, Oneida Co., NY with her daughter and son-in-law in 1900. Havilla and Josephine (Morehouse) Winchell had 4 children, 2 of which were living in 1900.

Havilla and Josephine had the following children:

1.1.  Amelia Winchell was born 26 February 1849 in Morehouse, Hamilton Co., NY. She married about 1864 Henry Kassing. (See Kassing bio)
1.2.  Charles H. Winchell was born 1854 in New York, died 16 Feb 1930 and is buried in New Forest Cemetery, Utica, NY.
1.3.  George Winchell was born 1860, died 12 Jan 1895 and is buried in New Forest Cemetery, Utica, NY.  George is listed as living with his mother in the 1891 Utica City directory.
1.4.  Henry H. Winchell was born 1 Aug 1865, died 23 Feb 1889 and is buried in New Forest Cemetery, Utica, NY.  Henry is listed as living with his parents in the 1887 thru 1889 Utica City directories.
