Julia Marsh’s family found?

Julia Marsh

Julia Marsh

Recently I was contacted by a DNA match on GEDMATCH. It was pretty exciting because once we figured out the relationship it solved a big hole that my sister had been working on for a couple of years. That is one of the great things about using the Internet in your genealogy research.  When you stop lurking and reach out, the connections can be awesome.

So what we were looking at was a possible fourth cousin match. As I went through D. Crooks family tree surname index I saw the name Cressey. Hummmm, sort of unusual, I have a possible Crissy on mine. So I looked at the Cressey and found on her tree that a Hannah Cressey was married to an Augustus Marsh. Whoa! Julia (Marsh) Clough Blossom’s death certificate has her father listed as “? Marsh” and her Mother as “? Crissy”. Madeleine had been working on this family line the last time we were in Salt Lake City, and had become quite frustrated with the Marsh line. One other descendant we know had the Marsh name coming from Maraschelleaux.  Madeleine had also been in contact with another research from the Three Rivers, California area where Julia had lived most of her later years. She had lots of information on Julia and Ira Blossom’s (Julia’s second Husband) children. We knew a lot about Julia and her husband Ira Blossom since their arrival in the Three Rivers area but could find no history for them prior, other than the 1850 US census for Hamburg, Erie County, New York, where Julia Marsh is in the Benjamin Clough household.

So what is the evidence that my Julia Marsh actually matches up with the Julia that was shown as a daughter to Hannah and Augustus Marsh on my Gedmatch contacts family tree?

  • The informant for Julia death certificate was “xxxxxxxxxxC. Buttman”,  Mrs. C. Buttman was Emma Blossom one of Julia’s daughter and whom Julia was living with at 2447 Mission Street, San Francisco, California, at the time of her death .

  • The 1850 US Census shows Julia’s place of birth as “VT” (Vermont)
1850 US Census Erie New York

  • The 1880 US Census shows both parents  of Julia born in “VT” (Vermont)
1880 US Census Mineral King, Tulare, California

Mineral King, Tulare, California

So while some census’ list Julia’s place of birth as New York, others show it as Vermont. D. Crooks  indicated that Hannah (Cressey) moved to New York soon after the birth in Vermont of her daughter Julia.

Both Hannah Cressey and Augustus Marsh were born in Vermont.

Julia Marsh’s death certificate shows her date of birth simply as Sept 1835 and her place of birth New York City. But it also list the place of birth for both her parents as New York. It also says that Julia had lived in California for 60 years. Taking all this as a second hand account or even a possible third hand account. If Julia died in 1922 at the age of 87, that would mean that she arrived in California in 1862. Yet we have her marriage to Ira Blossom in California in 1860. so maybe she had been in the state since 1860 and not for 60 years or maybe it was an estimate.

In the 1880 Census Ira Blosson’s place of birth is Illinois while her parents are shown as both being from Vermont. And Julia’s place of birth is shown as New York and both her parents are listed as being born in Vermont. Both Ira and Julia are shown as 47 years of age in this census which was taken in June of 1880 is in keeping with Julia’s birth date in Sept  of 1832 so she would not be 48 until three months later. Three years different from the Death Certificate.

In the 1910 US Census Julia and Ira Blossom are still on their property in Three Rivers. Here Julia is 74 years of age and indicated she has been married for 50 years, She also indicates here that she was born in Vermont as well as both of her parents.

Lemon Cove , South fork of the Kaweah Road, California

The 1900 US Census does not list Ira and Julia Blossom in Kaweah Township and on-line I could not find a enumeration for the area known as Three Rivers or Lemon Cove. But we know they are more than likely there because Ira Blosson is listed in the Voter registration for 1896 with a Three Rivers Post Office address. Going back to the 1870 US Census they are found in Farmersville with no new information.

1860 US Census Scotsburg, Fresno County, California

1860 US Census Scotsburg, Fresno County, California

In the 1860 Census the only thing we can glean from this is that they were in California by July of 1860 and appear married.

We have in the 1850 US Census Julia Marsh in the household with her soon to be first husband, Orson Clough, and his family, in Hamburg Erie Co. New York. Julia is listed as 18  in August of 1850. Again that places her birth in 1831 or 1832.

Now looking at the information on Hannah and Augustus March from D. Crooks. Hannah was born in 1782 and would have been about 49 to 53 when Julia was born. Kind of late in life for Hannah but she had 10 children according to D. Crooks records. The date on D. Crooks tree for Julia is 2 Sept. 1831. Sept also listed as the month that Julia was born on her death certificate.

So while the evidence is not conclusive neither my sister nor I have found any other possibilities and the biggest piece of evidence was that I found no other names in D. Crooks family tree that match names in my family tree, and we are shown as third to fourth cousin match on Gedmatch.

Clough Brick Wall part 3

by: Madeleine Putnam Melo

Ida May Clough born Dec 1854 (from death certificate, which also states she was born in California) was not found in the 1855 New York census with her brother and grandparents. In 1860 she is in the California Amador County census with Almira Surface, This US census states Ida was born in Illinois (I have yet to connect Almira to the Cloughs). I could not find her father in the 1860 US Census and her mother has remarried an Ira Blossom, and is found living in Scotsburg, CA with no children listed.
In the 1870 census she should be 16, I am not sure where she is. Her father Orson (47) is in Amador Co. with Abner Clough (63) and Abner’s wife Caroline (61) No Ida. Her mother now Julia Blossom is with Ira, and their Blossom children, no Ida.
There is an Ida Clough with A.H. (born in NY.) and Ella Clough family in Stockton, CA census for 1870. This Ida listed as 14 (close enough for a census) and born in Ca. Other youngsters in this household are a Fred (12) born in Wis or Mis? And a Geo. (10) born in Wis or Mis? And Arthur (6) born in Ca. Is this my Ida, is A. H. Clough an uncle, cousin?
In 1880 Ida Bryant (25) is listed with three children Clarence Bryant (7), Allace (5) and Maud (3) in the same household are Orson Clough(53) b. NY and Jenna Clough (37) and Kate Herbert, William Herbert, Nella Herbert ( I was to learn the Herberts were children from Jenna’s first marriage) and Orson and Jenna’s children Hilda Clough, Libba Clough and Amy Clough. Wow, so Orson had remarried between 1870 and 1880 and had not only 3 more of his own children, but 3 step children and Ida was there with three Bryant children. WOW!

Shortly after the 1880 census, on Dec 30, 1880 Ida May married my great grandfather Joseph Fletcher Putnam. They had three children, my grandpa Ike, my great aunt Lena and my great aunt Blanche. So now I understand that all those Bryants and their descendants are my half/cousins. WOW!
Joseph Putnam and Ida May divorced. I have never found the date. Clues are that my great Aunt Blanche, youngest child of Joseph & Ida was born in 1888.
There is no 1890 census to follow. Darn!  Joseph is listed in the voter’s registration for Kawaeh, Tulare Co. in 1890 and I know that they homesteaded property near Ida’s mother Julia and Ida’s stepfather Ira Blossom. So I assume they are still together in 1890. We have this family picture of Ida May on horseback in front of a giant sequoia in Sequoia National Park, not far from their ranch.

Ida May on Nellie

Ida May on Nellie

I also know that Ida May’s father Orson dies in 1897. I have been able to follow Orson’s extended family the Cloughs by Jenna and Jenna’ Herbert children, but that is another story.
By 1900 Ida May married Charles Peters and is living in Fresno Ca., no children are with them. Her Putnam children are found with their father Joseph in the 1900 census living in Alameda Co. Ida and Charles Peters had no children.
The 1900 census included some more detailed info. For Ida born: Dec 1854, age:45, born: California, father born: New York, Mother born Ohio.

Ohio?! Julia Marsh is born in Ohio? What is she doing in New York with the Clough in 1850 at the age of 18 and that census says Julia is born in Vermont?! Hmmmm!

Back to Ida. Of note in the 1900 census is also listed Charles Bryant, Ida son from her first marriage his birth is listed as 1872 in Cal. (Ida would have been 18 years old).
My older sister has a post card written by Ida after marriage to Peters from a mining town in Idaho. So I know they lived there part of the time. I assume Charles Peter’s was mining.
My great- grandmother Ida May lived in Los Angles before her death in February 1932. I know that my great aunts and my grandfather went to Los Angles from Visalia frequently to visit with her. Travel was fairly easy by train in the early 1900s.

I have long had a fascination with this great grandmother. Where was she born? Most records say California. I have read so many stories about early California and mining history I can only imagine the hardships of giving birth in such rugged circumstances. Ida May seems never to have had a stable relationship as a young girl with her mother or father. Of interest, which you will see in my next blog about her grandfather Benjamin Clough, is that Ida May does have an Illinois connection. Her Uncle Benjamin Clough had moved from Eire, New York to Will county Illinois. Benjamin and Lydia (Ida May’s grandparents) have also moved there by 1860. Later research showed not Julia Marsh but other Marsh names in same census with the Cloughs. The Marsh line has yet to be extensively research by me, but it adds to the possibility that Ida May was born in Illinois, but for now I am sticking to the California birth as fact.

Clough Brick Wall part 2

This is a continuation of last weeks blog by my sister.

Orson Clough was becoming a mystery. I have him in 1850, but not 1860, or in 1870. Also no wife, no children in 1870. I knew that Ida May Clough was the daughter of Orson Clough, but had not yet confirmed her mother, so I sent for her California death certificate.  My paternal aunt always called her Grandma Peters.  I knew she had lived in Los Angeles.  Guess what, the first one I got was the wrong Ida Peters so I sent for the other one.

It confirmed her father as Orson Clough, born in NY, and stated that her mother was Julia Marsh, born in NY. Yippee!

It stated Ida’s birthplace as California, city or town unknown. Darn.

So now I had Ida’s mother confirmed, and yes, she was the same person in that 1850 census.  In our family there have been lots of surnames.  Growing up I never knew how they were connected, just related some how!  My Great ‘Aunt Blanche’ was a woman I had known well and was the daughter of Ida May.  When I was a teenager she had given me information on her father’s side of the family, not much on her mother’s. (Click on image to enlarge)

Hand written tree w_WM

Not easy to read, but being the originator I have an advantage. Ida May had married a Bryant before she married my grandfather.  So when I started my genealogy I saw the name Bryant and all those other surnames that had been batted around in my youth.  So now to connect the dots.  I called a “shirt-tail cousin” (he is actually my half second cousin once removed) and he said,

 GRANDMA PETERS, IDA MAE, HAD A SISTER WHO LIVED IN THREE RIVERS CALIFORNIA. HER NAME WAS EVELYN.

Evelyn, who is Evelyn? Aunt Blanche did not say anything about Evelyn, there is no Evelyn on my crude family tree.  Aunt Blanche where are you when I need you?  I already knew part of the mystery but my brain was not connecting the dots, ok, so maybe genealogy is not my thing. Ada was achieving great maternal finds and I’m lost with who is Evelyn?  Well, I was not quitting! The parts I knew,and did not get, was why my grandfathers name was Ira Blossom Putnam. There was also the Busby’s, one of those batted about names, that had named their children after flowers, like Pansy. So I just thought that generation was crazy about flowers. I also knew about another family relative by the name of Ed Bryant, I thought he was grandpa’s cousin or some other relative. Turns out he was grandpa’s half brother.  I called a Three Rivers researcher and asked her about the Bryants . “Oh yes”,she said, “the Bryants, the Blossoms, the Loverins.” I knew about the Loverins, my Aunt Blanche was very close to a Loverin, although I never met him.  Well of course she was close to him, he was her nephew, just like my Dad was her nephew.  So I’m lost, all these relatives and I do not know how we are related.  So there was the clue Ira Blossom my own grandfather was not named for a flower, but named after someone with the surname of Blossom. .  So I started to search for the surname of Blossom in the census and Voila!

1860 Scotsburg, CA, Ira Blossom, 28, Rancher, born in Ohio, Julia Blossom, 33, Housekeeper, born in New York. Julia was 18 in the 1850 census, maybe this is not my Julia. Hmmmm. (Historical note: Scots-burg, now Centerville was founded in 1854 near the Kings River. In 1858 a ferry was established at Poole’s crossing.  In the winter of 1861-1862 flooding destroyed the ferry and town.)

Further research finds Ira and Julia Blossom in Farmersville in 1870 with children Eva (is this my Evelyn?) Emma and Charles.

In 1880 they are in Three Rivers CA, with two more daughters Anna and Lottie.  Both Ira (now shown as born in Illinois) and Julia (shown again born in NY.)  are now 47. Hmmmm……

Julia Marsh

Julia Marsh

I was able to follow Ira and Julia till there deaths, Julia in 1922 age 88 and Ira in 1924 age 91. I have both Ira’s and Julia’s death certificates. Ira’s parents are listed as unknown and Julia’s are listed as ?Marsh and ?Crissy.  Hmmmm….

Yes Eva is my Evelyn, born in October of 1860. She is variously listed as Evelyn Clough, Evelyn Blossom and Evelyn Blossom Clough.  I have not researched her, was she Orson Clough’s biological child but raised by Ira Blossom?  Since my great-grandmother choose to name her son Ira Blossom (he was Grandpa Ike to us), her step-father must have been beloved by the family.  In the Three Rivers area there is a Blossom Peak and an Evelyn Lake.  Also Clough’s Caves after William Clough (Uncle Billy) but that is another story.

So I know the rest of the story about Ida May’s mother, but what about Ida and her father Orson? Am I lost again? Darn!

More to follow next week……

 

52 Ancestors-#36- Ira Blossom Putnam- Grandpa Ike

Ira "Ike" Blosspm Putnam

Ira “Ike” Blossom Putnam

Best known to all by “Ike”, he was born Ira Blossom Putnam on 30 March 1883 in Three Rivers, California. The son of Joseph Fletcher Putnam and Ida May Clough.  That name always bothered me, not Ike but Blossom. It was especially strange that every cow we ever had was called “Blossom”. When my sister and I were working on the family history we had this  “Aha!” moment. We discovered that Ike’s mothers step father was Ira Blossom. Blossom being his surname. So Ike was actually named after his step grandfather.

From the time that Ike and his two sisters were born until about 1892 the Putnam family lived in Three Rivers, California. In the Voter Registration book for Fresno County in October 1892 Joseph Putnam registered to vote. The precinct was called Sequoia and the Post Office was Camp Badger. Whether the whole family was living there is hard to know, possible since Ida May’s mother and step father were also living in Three Rivers, Ida May and the kids stayed there while her husband worked at Camp Badger to earn extra money. It may have been a logging camp. I have not found any information on Camp Badger. I did find a small community called Badger in Tulare county north of Visalia at approximately 3,000 ft. elevation near Sequoia and Kings Canyon. Could be the place.

In 1894 Ike’s grand father Joseph Putnam died in Clements California.

In 1896 I found Joseph Fletcher Putnam is in the Voter Registration book for San Joaquin County listed as a farmer in Clements. I take it that Joseph has gone home to Clements to take care of his fathers farm.

In the 1896 Voter Registration book for San Joaquin County Joseph Fletcher Putnam is still there. This time He is listed as a Saloonkeeper.  So is his family in Clements?

The next record I have is 1897 where Ida May marries a Charles Peters in Tulare County. They later move to Los Angeles.

In the 1898 Voter Registration book for San Joaquin County, Joseph Fletcher Putnam is still there and is again listed as a Saloonkeeper.

I found it interesting that Ike’s father moved up and down California so much and wondered if the kids were shuffled along with him or did they stay in Three Rivers all this time?

In the 1900 census we have Ira B. Putnam at 16 years of age with his father and his two sisters, Lena and Blanche, in Santa Clara.

Lena, Ike, Blanche Grace and Joseph F. Putnam

Grace and Joseph F. Putnam

They were not his only siblings. His father had been married previously and he had two older sisters Grace being the eldest and Alice who I believe Ike may have never met. His mother was also married previously and she had C.E. (Ed) Bryant, Maud Bryant, and Allace (Alice) Bryant.  In this same year (1900)Grace, Ike’s older sister, has married a George Bryant and that family is living in Alameda, not so far away.  “And that’s another story.”

Later that year (1900) Joseph Fletcher marries Elizabeth Potter.

Anyway back to Ike. On 15 July 1907 Ike married Etta Jane Francis in Visalia California.

The 1910 US Census shows Ike and Etta in Visalia. They are shown on the county road Goshen to Tulare. Ike is shown as a farmer who owns his place free and clear. From this I would ascertain that they are on the Ranch that my older brother and sister remember. Which would now be between the end of  Walnut Ave. and Hwy 99 West of Visalia.

From the 1910 census until his death “Ike ” lived and worked the Ranch outside of Visalia.

His mother died in Los Angeles February 1932. and his father died later that same year in December in Visalia.

Ike died 19 April 1948.

My paternal grandfather died before I could know him. I was sure my siblings all would have memories. My brother who is 6 years older then me wrote:

I was six or seven when he passed away,  do not really remember much.  They had sold the major portion of the ranch and had only kept the 20 acres where we grew up.  I remember before they sold the ranch, going to the milk barn with dad and the milk man would always put me on the roof to be out of his way.  That was when they would come to pick up the milk in the milk cans.  Also remember picking up prunes after they were shaken from the tree.  When they killed a hog they would scald it in a big iron tub and scrape the hair off the hide.  Mom would render the fat and we would have cracklings. After they sold that portion of the ranch and built the house between the one we lived in and aunt babes, he had cancer and they amputated his leg.  I remember him walking on crutches.  I have a picture from grandma Gay of him and Dad, holding a rattle snake he had killed. He loved the three rivers area, and we had relatives’ there.  He was always kind and thoughtful

So then my older sister who is 8 years older called me to relate her stories to me.

I remember when the family would go Posting up to Three Rivers. That’s  what they called it when they would go get Posts for the Ranch. There were rattlesnakes everywhere. Out there where that big oak tree was, was a Prune orchard. When Sweringer bought that piece he took all those Prune trees out and planted cotton. I use to follow him (Grandpa Ike) around when he picked blackberries in the garden, he had a big garden. I’ve never found nectarines as good as Ike’s. Maybe because he grafted everything. I remember the pomegranate tree, it was there as you drove up the lane and came around the house on the left you could see the pomegranate tree.

When I asked about his having his leg amputated she said:

Yes they had to do it twice. They took it off below the knee and then they had to go back in and take more. I was really devastated. All I really remember is his lying there in that bed at the house.

So my other sister who is just eighteen months older really has no memories. She does have a photo that has a story about her taking an egg to Grandpa Ike to show him.

52 Ancestors-#30-Ida May Clough-3 Marriages-7 Children

This week we are looking at my paternal great grandmother Ida May Clough.  Her story may be a little confusing, she had both Madeleine and I confused for years. She was married three times and had 7 children.

Ida May on Nellie

Ida May on Nellie

Ida was the daughter of Orson Clough and Julia Marsh, born  on 29 December 1854 depending on what census we look at Ida May was born in Illinois, New York, and California. We know that there was at least one other child from this union, William Orson Clough had been born 23 November 1851.

Madeleine, my sister and research partner, had found Julia Marsh (Ida May Clough’s mother) in the 1850 US census in the Benjamin Clough family in Hamburg, Erie County, New York. Julia is only 18 and listed last, probably a domestic servant. Orson (Ida May Clough’s father) is 22 and the son of Benjamin and Lydia Clough.

In the 1855 New York Census for Hamburg we did find B.J. (70) and L. Clough (68), and W. Clough (4) listed as gchild. But without Orson or Julia in the household. From a biography on William O. Clough he states that his father moved to Illinois in 1856.

In the 1860 US census, I did find a Benjamin Clough(50) and a Lucinda (42) with a young child Lucinda (9) and a William Clough (9). In DuPage, Will County, Illinois but no Orson or Julia. Madeleine, my sister, had located early on during one of her searches in the Library in Amador county an Ida M. Clough (6) in Amador County with a Almira Surface in 1860.  So the big Question has been “where is Orson and Julia in the 1860 US census?” If any one stumbles upon them please let us know. And who is this Almira Surface to the Clough’s?

In October of 1860 Eveleyn Clough is supposedly born to Julia (Marsh) Clough in California. And at the same time she is reported to have married Ira Blossom in California. Julia (Marsh Clough) and Ira Blossom settle in the Three Rivers Area east of Visalia, California

In the 1870 US census, Elliott township San Joaquin county, California we find an Ida (14) Clough in the A.A. Clough (37) family. This may or may not be our Ida May. If any one knows this Clough family and can prove or disprove this I would love to hear from them.

I have located a marriage of an Edwin D. Briant (Bryant?) in San Joaquin county to an Ida May Clough on 22 February 1872. Not sure if this is ours but it fits. Their first child Clarence Edwin Bryant b. 28 Dec. 1872. Their next child  Allace Bryant  (according to 1900 census) was born in December 1874. We have not been able to find a specific date but I have found her death record that only shows the year of her birth. The last child to this union is Maud Bryant who was born in October 1876.

In 1880 Ida (Clough) Bryant (26) is a widow  with three children. I have not been able to determine what happened to Mr. Bryant.

In the 1880 US census we find Ida May (Clough) Bryant in Amador County, California  on 3 June with Orson Clough (53), Jenna (37) his wife, Kate Herbert (18), William Herbert (16), Nelly Herbert (11), Hilda Clough (7), Libba (6), Amy (3), Ida Bryant (25) wd. , Clarence (7), Allace (5), Maud (3).

On 30 December Ida May (Clough) Bryant marries Joseph Fletcher Putnam in San Joaquin county. Joseph F. Putnam is raising his daughter (Grace) from an earlier marriage to Fanny Stewart on his own. Fanny had deserted him in 1878 and taken their 2 year old daughter Alice with her to Kansas never to return leaving the older child Grace behind. Joseph filed for divorce in April  1880 claiming desertion and was awarded a divorce.

From this marriage Ida (Clough Bryant) and Joseph Putnam have four children. Arthur who dies in infancy, Ira Blossom b.30 March 1883 in Three Rivers , California, Lena A. b. 12 August 1885 in Three Rivers, California, and Blanche A. b. 12 August 1888 in Three Rivers, California.

23 April 1897 we have Ida M. (Clough Bryant) Putnam marring C.T. Peters in Tulare, California. Hey, what happened to her marriage to Joseph F. Putnam? From the Photo above you can see that Joseph F. Putnam and his children are back in Clements where he grew up.

In the above 1900 US census we find near the bottom Charles T. Peter (30) a laborer at a sawmill with wife Ida M. (Clough Bryant Putnam) (45) and Clarence Bryant (27) s.son.

I do not see them in the 1910 US Census but they do appear in the 1914 City Directory for San Pedro which is in the Los Angeles Area.

The above photo of Ida (Clough Bryant Putnam) with her adult children was probably taken some time around 1920. The only child missing is C.E. (Ed) Bryant.

Below is a photo of Ed in his Spanish American War outfit.

In 1920 we find Ida (Clough Bryant Putnam) Peters (65) widowed  at her daughter, Alice (Bryant) (45) Corsen’s home. Also in the same household is her other daughter Maud (Bryant) (43) Tyler   and Edwin (16) Tyler who would be Ida’s grandson.

Ida May (Clough Bryant Putnam) Peters died on 6 February 1932. Her death certificate shows her birthdate 29 December 1854. Birth place is listed as unknown City , State of California. I do not believe that is accurate. When we look to see who the informant was it shows a L.M. Koontz of County Farm, Calif. It does list her parents as Orson Clough b. New York and Julia Marsh b. New York. The cause of death for Ida May was Chronic Myocarditis which she had been treated for over 1 year.
