Re: Harriet wife of Charles Welch in Jefferson County, New York
Posted by: Nora McLean (ID *****2804) Date: January 06, 2006 at 13:31:06

Does anyone know the maiden name for Harriet the second wife of Charles WELCH (Junior) who was born 1802 in New York, son of Charles Welch Senior and his wife Eunice COLE?

At LDS is posted info that first wife of Charles Welch was Pamelia LAVALLEE. She must have died about 1835-1845; she and Charles had sons George Welch born about 1832 and Orrin Welch born about 1835.

Charles Welch and second wife Harriet had these children:

Luther Welch born about 1846
Harriet Welch (Hatty) born July 8, 1848
Emma Welch born 1850
John Welch born about 1852
Frank Welch born about 1853- although Frank and John may be same person (?)

Harriet was first married to Amos TANNER who was born January 8, 1809, possibly in Otsego County, New York, son of Benjamin Wilcox Tanner and his wife Polly PETTINGAL. Amos was drowned in the St. Lawrence River on October 15, 1832, the date of his daughter Cynthia's eighth birthday. Amos and Harriet apparently had a son John born about 1835.

Does anyone know what happened to young John Tanner? There is a John Tanner age 15 years on 1850 census for Town of Alexandria in Jefferson County, living with Hiram and Nancy Stratton and family- were they related to Tanner's? Or related to John's mother Harriet? Was the surname Stratton or Stanton?

Cynthia Tanner daughter of Amos Tanner and his wife Harriet (who re-married to Charles Welch Junior) married James Harvey KEECH on March 10, 1854 but I am not sure if they were married in Jefferson County, NYS or in Ontario, Canada.

James Harvey Keech was born in 1826, the son of Albert Keech and his wife Nancy Haynes, from Oneida County, NYS.

Cynthia Tanner Keech died Dec. 13, 1880 at the age of 48 years @ North Frederickburgh, Lennox County, Ontario and is buried there at the Bethany Cemetery. Her husband James Harvey Keech re-married on May 4, 1881 to Marguerite Spencer, daughter of John William Spencer and Cynthia Hicks.

Would appreciate any info on mother of Cynthia, Harriet Unknown, and/or any info on Cynthia's brother John Tanner. Also, what became of the Welch children that Harriet and Charles had?

Both Charles and Harriet are buried at the Brownville Cem. in Brownville, Jefferson County, NYS as are Charles' parents, Charles Welch Senior and his wife Eunice COLE.

Thanks from Nora in Alberta, Canada
