Notes


Tabitha QUIMBY

NOTES: She is suppose to have been married to Nathaniel HOLT as well, but I can find no marriage record for him and her. Larry Hill's book says Nathaniel was her first husband and James was her second husband. I found the marriage for James Chapman and she is listed as Tabitha Quimby as if she has never been married before. Was Samuel Quimby Holt born out of wedlock and his parents never married?

I find his wife and son in 1870, but can not find him or Harriet in 1870, where are they????

NOTES: According to Nathan's great-granddaughter Janet Kendall, she does not think Nathan was easy to live with and Harriet was taking care of him when he died. According to the OBITUARY, he was 300 lbs. and died from injuries received when he fell off a wagon coming home from a local saloon. He literally AND figuratively fell off the wagon.

PROBATE RECORDS: Hunterdon County, New Jersey film #802406, pages 351 to 353
Nathan R. HOLT of Amwell, written - 10 Aug 1879, died - 20 Aug 1879, probated - 1 Sep 1879
Mentions - daughter Harriet B. HOLT who was born out of wedlock, but shall not be disinherited, but become a legal heir to his estate. Also mentions - son William HOLT. Will says that both children are under 21 years of age and if they shall die before reaching 21 or leaving any heirs then Nathan's estate to go to his sister Susan. No last name is given for Susan so I assume she is single and a HOLT.

He is listed twice in 1880 once he is 17, married to a girl named Anna who was 15 and they were living with his widowed father Johnson Hummer. Next he is 19, living in the home of Wesley HAWK in Delaware, Hunterdon, New Jersey and working as a farm laborer.

NOTES: She was mentioned in her father's Will in 1879 as being born out of wedlock, but shall not be disinherited, but become a legal heir to his estate. The way the Will reads I would assume that Amy Jane YOUNG is not her mother, which would explain why she is not with Amy and William in 1870.

She was 19 in 1880 working as a servant in the home of Lemuel and Sarah Huffman in Delaware, Hunterdon, New Jersey.

She was 44 in 1910 and said this was her 2nd marriage and she was the mother of 6 children but only 4 were still living.
