My ancestor, William Metcalf, d. 1831, NYC, married Eleanor Thistle Hutchinson ca. 1819. They had 3 children, Eleanor, Anne and William, and Eleanor Thistle died in 1827. In her death notice, Alfred Winans was mentioned, and, according to various trees, he married Mary Ann Hutchison King, a widow, in 1824 in NYC. Alfred Lincoln Winans is said to have migrated from NYC to McKean Co., PA, and then to Topeka, KS. The guardianship papers for Eleanor Thistle's children name Absolom Hutchinson as an uncle. I believe this is the same Absalom Hutchinson of Bradford, McKean Co., PA, who moved there in 1832.
Anne, the daughter, is said to have died shortly after her father. Eleanor married John Deutsch. William, 5 years old, was put under the guardianship of Henry Wiggins and taken to Michigan.
Mary Ann is said to be from Dublin, Ireland; Absalom from Cootehill, Ireland. Eleanor Thistle was from Ireland, b. ca 1798.
Does anyone have any records on the parents of these people? Am I off base in believing that these 3 are siblings? Any information would be greatly appreciated. I'd be happy to share what I have.
