Ruth E Weymouth book--look up?

Surnames: Weymouth/Aulsebrook/Fraser
Anyone out there with a copy of this book about the Weymouth family in America? I've seen it in a historical collection in Wisconsin but am currently in Toronto and needing to find out if a person is listed in it!

I am looking for ANY info it might contain about Daniel Constantine Weymouth, bn. 1850 in VT, moved with parents Daniel Folsom Weymouth and Mary Riddle Blodgett to Wisconsin as an infant; was a lawyer in Jefferson WI, married Eliza Aulsebrook, had daughter Edith 1874 (who was a spinster schoolteacher in Denver in 1920 census); Eliza died ??, he m. again c. 1878 to Flora Fraser, who was 18, and they moved to Texas in 1880--I have had no luck tracing them after the 1880 census in Texas, but think they may have had another child, a son, c. 1904 who is buried in Jefferson, d. 1937.

any info about DCWeymouth would be much appreciated!

Are you looking for the son of Daniel C. and Flora Mary Fraser? In the Weymouth Family History Book by Ruth Ella Weymouth There is a son named Harry Appleton or Appleby born Nov 7, 1880 In San Antonio Texas, died Jan 24, 1919 in Greenfield, MA, M. October 3, 1911 Springfiled MA to Nellie C. Barrett. There is a little more written about him but I won't go into more detail until I know this is the one you are looking for.

Yes, this is the DC Weymouth and Flora Fraser connection I'm looking for--although I wonder why there is no son named Harry in the 1885 Texas census which shows them and his daughter Edith from his first marriage? I'd love any other info it has about him--I was unable to find ANY Weymouth listed in 1920 or 1930 census, but if he died in 1919 that would explain it! Also, is there anything in there about DC's first marriage, to Elisa Aulsebrook in Jefferson WI in 1873, and birth of daughter Edith in 1874? He m. Flora in 1878 and immediately left for Texas, taking his young daughter with him--I assumed that meant she had died, but nope, she turns up in both 1920 and 1930 census as spinster teacher in Denver living with--surprise!--her own mother, who remarried a William Sherrick of PA in 1883 in Colorado. Obviously a scandal and/or a mystery behind this one! I also found Flora, a widow living with half sister in MA in 1920 census and 'working out' as a domestic. any info gratefully accepted!

Information copied from the book I have by Ruth Ella Weymouth: Hope this information helps. It does sound like something went on that was not quite proper in those days…..at least no one talked about it! If he took his daughter, does that mean Eliza was an “unfit mother”, was she ill or did he just run off with a younger woman and took the daughter with him? Possibilities are endless and shall remain a mystery to all.

Daniel C. Weymouth (Daniel, George, Shadrach, Timothy, Edward) born about 1850, probably Bethel, VT. His folks moved to Jefferson, WI in the spring of 1850, living there in 1870 a law student, Married Eliza Aulsebrook, born Sept. 12, 1854, Concord, WI. Living with brother, Alfred Aulsebrook 1880 at Asvadaville, CO with daughter, Edith, born Nov. 2, 1874 Concord, Jefferson Cty, WI, school principal in Denver, CO, Mother Eliza

In 1880 Daniel is in Frio Cty, TX wife is F. M. age 19, born in IL. This is probably Flora Mary Fraser.

Harry (Appleton or Appleby) born Nov. 7 1880 San Antonio, TX, died Jan 24, 1919 Greenfield, MA, Married October 3, 1911 in Springfield, MA to Nellie C. Barrett, born 1878 Whitehall NY, died Jan 10, 1920 In Greenfield, MA (dau of Wm. & Catherine (Cronin) Barrett born in Ireland. From the History of Greenfield, Harry came to this County in 1896 and for three years attended Mt. Hermon School, clerked in a store and later worked in local factories. During these years he was studying law and debating, and aiding in the support of his mother and education of a sister. When thirty one he was admitted to the Franklin CO. bar on Sept. 16, 1912, and practiced continuously until his death. For three years he was town solicitor, and treas. Of the Law Library Assn. He was loyal, unselfish and respected, and an able speaker, if anything happened to Ruth (daughter), Harry’s grandmother Weymouth’s watch was to go to Phyllis Wilson of Buchanan, MI.

One Child, Ruth Flora, born Sept. 6, 1915 Greenfield, MA Married Nov 4, 1941 Charles John Hertter, son of John and Barbara (Einchenger) Hertter,

Many thanks--strange that she has Edith living w/mother in 1880 census because I found her living with DC and Flora, same census in Frio Co? No date for death of DC, but if Harry was helping support mother and sister Edith's education (which would indicate she was living with them at one time, wouldn't it?) it would seem likely that his father was already dead by 1900?

Would you mind checking the Weymouth book index for two other bits?
-to see if there is a Daniel Riddle Weymouth listed at all? There's a grave in Jefferson WI with this name and dates 1903-1937 but no death certificate there, indicating he died somewhere else and was brought to family plot in WI. Also odd DC didn't name his son, if it was the only one, Daniel--a family tradition for three generations. Harry and Apple-- must be Fraser family names, as they don't turn up anywhere in our Weymouth lineage.
-to see what info it has about Cynthia Weymouth (sister of DC) who m. Charles Burg in North Dakota in 1880 and lived in Montana until death in 1901--specifically anything about her children Ernestine and Kate Sephronia; also if it gives dates for birth /death of Charles Copeland Burg, aka Copeland, who was a well known artist.Family source gives quite diff. dates than artist bio on website!

again, thanks so much!1

The father to your DC was Daniel Folsum Weymouth. He was married 4 times, the first wife's name was Mary Riddle Blodgett, she was the daughter of Benjamin and Mary (Riddle) Blodgett. That must be where the Riddle name came from. Rebecca was born Sept. 19, 1823 in Randolph, Vt. and is only listed as dying before 1860. The first child of Daniel and Rebecca, Mary Rebecca, born July 22, 1844 in Randolph, VT. died Feb. 15, 1914 in Canada, burried in WI. Her third child was Daniel Weymouth, born Jan 30, 1870, married in Lewiston, MT to Ione Hoffman, they had 5 children: One child looks to be Dorothy, married to Don Wade, residing in Hollywood, CA, having two sons; then Elizabeth, Ruth, Grace and Daniel Weymouth Jr. You might check Montana, dates sound like he could be their son, he would have been the gr. grandson of Daniel Folsum Weymouth, but there is nothing further on him in the book, it seems if she (Ruth Ella) had any more information on him she would have written it.
I hope you are not confused by all of this. Daniel C. Weymouth is listed as the 4th child of Daniel Folsum and Mary Riddle Blodgett.

Cynthia was the 3rd child born about 1848, married Charles Burg, 3 children, Ernestine married Adelbert Alderson and had 3 children, Adelbert. Lawrence and Margaret; Charles Copeland; and Kitty. That is all she gives for information.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I've tried sending some information a couple of times, but was unable to succeed. I have the Weymouth Family History Book by Ruth Ella Weymouth (Briggs). In the book there is a Blodgett, and a few D. Weymouth Daniel Weymouth etc. Perhaps you can list the names and the information you want from this book. I would be glad to forward any info on the Weymouths that I have. I am an 11th generation Weymouth - Edward Weymouth and Esther Hodsdon, landed in Kittery, ME Edward was born in 1639. Hope I can help. Cricket

I am Ruth Weymouth's grand daughter, Aletia. She recently passed away after suffering ffrom alzhiemers for the last decade. I cannot say how happy it has made me to come across this message! She worked so hard to put another card in the Burton card catalogue at the Detroit Public Library. This task was left undone due to her Alzhiemers. I have the text that will be put into that collection this month. She always told me how important it was to know one's people. Strangely enough, I was brought up away from most family. In her honor, we are planning a reunion of our family of Weymouths in Maine this summer (Wouldn't it be neat to have more than just our little group?). It seems to me that you and I must be related. I don't know that this message will be meaningful as it is so far behind the original thread, but I can be reached at ad5158@wayne.edu should any other relatives see this. Maybe we can have a lovely gathering!
