an unnamed male baby 1881. Another child, John b. & d. 1876 lived a few short days. In total

a. William Henry – He shows up on the 1891 Canadian census but I was unable to find him anywhere after that date.
b. George Albert – George went by his middle name, Albert. There is an immigration record for him in 1891 for entry to
. He is listed as a shoemaker. He married

at least 5 children: In 1911 they were living in Boston,
children were still at home and they had three boarders as well. Colchester, NS

d. Hilda (1877-1956) married George Wellington Lloy, c. 1895. In 1901 they were living with her parents and had a four year old son, James. Hilda and George were living in

(1907-?) m. Hilda Baker in 1926
d/6. Marjorie (1910-?) m. George Spike in 1927
d/7. Clarence (1912-?)
Bessie) (1878-?) married George W. Brown in 1902.
In 1910 they were living at 13
Eustus St. in Chelsea MA. George was a salesman in
Groceries. They had 2 children, Chester, b. 1904 and Florence, b. 1906. A third child, Esther joined the
family, b. 1912, while they were living in .
In 1920, they were living on Everett, MA Central St. in Georgetown, Essex Co., MA. George was listed
as a Janitor at a public school. In 1930 the family was living on Andover
St. in Georgetown. Chester and
Esther are still
living at home and George still has the same occupation. Bessie was called Elizabeth and it states that her parents were born in Scotland.
This is a prime example of misreporting. The person
giving the information to the census taker was not aware that the parents
of Bessie/Elizabeth were born in Nova Scotia
and not Scotland. No further
f. Unnamed baby
g. Agnes (1883-?)
h. Mary B. (1885-1909) Mary died, at age 24, in
Boston, MA from renal failure and septicemia. She was
buried in Woodlawn Cem. in Everett, MA
i. Robert William (1886-1937) He died in
j. Greta (1888-?)
5. Sarah Jane (1842-1901) Sarah married Aaron J. Wells, but couldn’t find a date or place of the marriage. In 1870 they were living in
and had a son, George, age 1. Annabelle was b. in 1870; Chester
Gordon was b. 1874; Walter was b.
1875 and died 1875, age 1 month; Gracie was b.
1876. By the 1880 census, the only children listed were George, Annie and Gracie. No record could be found
for Chester Gordon. Gracie married Harry
Stephenson in 1899 and Annabelle married Charles Marston in 1910. In 1900, George was an inmate in an Almshouse in Ipswich,
MA , Sarah
d. in 1901 of heart disease at age 59. In 1910, Aaron Wells was living at Ipswich, MA 10 Warren St. in .
1920 shows Aaron still living at the same
address, age 77, and he manufactured horse radish. In 1910, daughter Grace Wells Stephenson is
living in Beverly MA. Her husband Harry
worked in a shoe factory and they had three daughters, Dorothy, b. 1903; Virginia, b. 1906; and Ruth, b. 1908. I
was unable to locate any further records on Charles and Annabelle Wells. Her marriage certificate in 1910 said she was a nurse living in Ipswich, MA ,
it was her first marriage and
his second. He was 20 years her senior. Haverhill MA
As to Grace Wells Stephenson, a bit of a mystery popped up. There is a birth record for the oldest child, Dorothy Grace Stephenson for 1903 and a death record for the same child, with the same parents, living in the same place for 1905. She apparently died of Cholera Infantum at the age of 2 and 5 mos. However, the 1910 census for Beverly MA states quite clearly that Dorothy G., age 7 is living with her parents Harry and Grace. I have no explanation for this.
6. James Hylsop (1848-?) m. Elizabeth Mullins in 1867. There is a birth record for a male
baby in 1868. There is no further information on
7. George Henry (1849-1924) m. Christy Ann Mullins in 1872. There seems to be little information about this family. It is unknown if Mullins is Christy’s maiden name or a name from a former marriage. She had a son, Percy Mullins who was b. in 1869 and there seems to be quite a bit of information on him and his descendants. There are two possible children for George Henry and Christy Ann, but there is no verifiable information that I could find. The possibilities are:
a. Catherine, b. 1873
b. Christy b. 1877
There is no further information on the rest of Isaac’s children. Isaac was the youngest child of Francis and Elizabeth Carmichael. The next and last installment of the Carmichael Chronicle will follow the oldest child of this couple, Thomson (Thompson) Carmichael. Thomson was my gt. gt. grandfather so this will be my family line. This will definitely not happen till after the holidays.
