Alice Davis had a daughter Armiah Alice Hotchkiss in Canada on May 22, 1872. When the daughter was baptised, the father's name was given as JOhn W. Hotchkiss of Brooklyn. On a later census, the daughter said her father was born Connecticut. Looking for the marriage of John W. Hotchkiss and Alice Davis abt 1870-1872. Thanks for any help. I have been looking for years.

Have you looked at the death record for JOhn W. Hotchkiss in Brooklyn, or wherever he died? Did his wife die before him? Perhaps there are clues there.

I have looked for the deaths of both of them, for years. Alice was remarried to John T. Kelly in 1872. Alice and Kelly were divorced in 1883, and Alice disappeared. The last time I found her was the 1880 census with Kelly. Then the messy divorce in the 1883 New York Times. Rumour has it that Hotchkiss died in 1878 (according to NY times) but I didn't find it.

More sources in newspapers are available every day, perhaps there may be some clues in this site - https://sites.google.com/site/onlinenewspapersite/?goback=%2...

I expect you've explored the "rumor has it" aspect of the story? Sometimes that is where the red herrings lie.

Did you see this entry at FindAGrave.com? http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Ho...;

They may be your folks. I expect the local funeral homes would be able to supply you with more information, as well as the Town Clerk in their location.

If not, this may be your fellow.

Later census records may clarify them for you.

The first couple are too young to have had a child in 1872. As for the second couple, I will keep them in mind but they don't really fit the picture. Pennsylvania is not in the cards. but thank you for looking and for sending these. It is much appreciated.
