This is a photo of Ralph Cushman Fessenden (1851-1917), my great-great grandfather. His grandfather, Reuben Fessenden (1786-1866), came from Vermont in 1816 and settled on a farm in Gerry. His descendants lived on the family farm until 1920. Ralph is buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Sinclairville.

KIMBEL HOMESTEAD
This is the old Kimbel homestead in Charlotte Center, date unknown. My Great  Grandmother, Ellen Mahala Kimbel Fessenden (1887-1981), grew up in this  house. Her father, Charles E. Kimbel, died the same year she was born. He  was only 24. I know very little about Ellen's family. I know her mother,  Ella J. Dibble (1862-1915) never remarried so Great Grandma was an only  child.  When Great Grandma & Grandpa Fessenden married, they moved to Mount  Morris, New York to be near the TB hospital Ella was in and where she  eventually died. The 2 women on the porch could very well be Ella Dibble  Kimbel and daughter, Ellen Kimbel Fessenden.

HASKIN(S), CHARLES T.

CHARLES T. HASKIN(S) has been identified with the agricultural and lumber interests of Clark County since 1871. He is a native of Chautauqua County, New York, born February 21, 1841, and is a son of William and Aurilla (Vosburgh) Haskin, also natives of the Empire State. The parents emigrated to Wisconsin in 1847, and settled in Waudesha County, at the town of Wukesha, where they resided until 1857 thence they removed to Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, where the father passed the remainder of his days the mother is still living, at the age of seventy-six years. He was a carpenter by trade, but in the later years of his life devoted his time to farming. The family consisted of five children: Horace, Elizabeth, William E.,
Charles T. and Frank H. Charles T., the subject of this notice, was a young child when his parents brought him to the wilds of the frontier, and there he grew to manhood, surrounded by all the vicissitudes and privations of pioneer life. He received his first lessons in the primitive log schoolhouse, and during the vacations assisted his father in the work at home. When he was sixteen years old he went with his parents to Fond du Lac County, and there he began farming on his own account. He remained there until 1871, and then came to Clark County, and purchased eighty acres of timber land which he has since made his home. As his means would admit he has invested in land until he now owns 280 acres, situated on sections 11 and 12, Beaver Township and section 34, Green Grove Township. Fifty acres of this land have been converted from the wild state in which nature left them, to one of advanced cultivation. To accomplish this has been an undertaking of no small magnitude. It should be remembered, too, that Mr. Haskin has been unaided by any financial assistance in his business, and that all his success is due to his own merit.

In 1864, December 15, this worthy gentleman was united in marriage to Miss Mary R. Woodworth, of Fond du Lac County. She was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, October 17, 1846, and is a daughter of Harvey and Emaline (Brush) Woodworth, natives of the State of New York. They removed to Wisconsin in 1844, and located in Milwaukee thence they went to Fond du Lac County, and about the year 1874 they moved to Nebraska, where they are now making their home.

Mr. and Mrs. Haskin have had born to them five children: Laura, deceased Rosa, William, John and Charles T.

MALLORY, ALLEN

My great great great great grandparents are buried in the Westfield Cemetery - Isaac and Amy Briggs Mallory. Isaac Mallory attended the first town meeting of Westfield in 1829 and was elected "fenceviewer". The 1830 census records show that Isaac Mallory was present in Portland and the later census records for Federal and State show him to be a resident of Westfield until he died in 1867. Isaac and Amy had 8 children, most of whom left Westfield and settled in various places in the West. Their oldest daughter, Anna Mallory married Lorenzo Bliss and they are both buried in the Westfield cemetery. Their son Emmett stayed in Chautauqua County, married Caroline Walker, then Jane Scofield and is buried in the Scofield plot in the Mayville cemetery. Their daughter Esther Mallory married Dr. Charles Gillis and both are buried in the Westfield cemetery. Also daughter Finette Mallory who married Albert Manley, is buried next to her parents. Their son, Allen Mallory, who with Emmett was a one time proprietor of the Glen Mills, is my direct ancestor. His daughter, Phoebe Adelaide Mallory, was born in Westfield. Her mother, Harriet Chapin Mallory, died at age 32 and is buried in the Westfield cemetery next to Isaac and Amy Mallory. Both Allen Mallory and daughter Addie Mallory Curtis are buried in Bentonville, Arkansas.
