About Maria Hanchett

(from a descendant) http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/m/a/x/Janice-M-Maxwell/GENE107-0013.html

43. Maria McCloud423, born 01 Feb 1809 in Logan County, Ohio; died in California. She was the daughter of 86. Judge William McCloud and 87. Elizabeth Boswell.

Notes for Edward Seth Hanchett: Edward built bridges in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. He was one of the original incorporators of the Stephenson Hydraulic and Manufacturing Company. In 1855, the family moved to California where Edward made a fortune as a money lender.

In 1860, Edward Seth Hanchett and his wife, Maria McCloud, lived in White Oak Township, El Dorado County, California. According to Carol Damerval, a Museum Volunteer at the El Dorado County Museum, "White Oak Township was located near the present town of El Dorado Hills, and near the smaller town of Clarksville. El Dorado Hills and Clarksville are near highway 50 approximately 20 miles east of Sacramento."

Some members of the family moved to San Jose, California where there are still descendents. Hanchett Avenue and the Hanchett Park Area of San Jose, California, were named for the part of this family that settled in that city.

This same family member also posted the following assertion, though I have not found any other support for it:

" http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/msg/rw/AWB.2ACE/1600

Need information on Marie/Maria McCloud's parents and siblings. She was born on February 1, 1810 in, I think, Freeport, Guernsy County, Ohio. When she and her family left Ohio, I don't know. One of her uncles was Alexander Roderick McLeod, a fur trapper, who lived and worked mostly in Quebec. She married Edward Seth Hanchett in 1828 . . ."

"Two of her uncles are Alexander Roderick McLeod and Peter John McLeod. Her family may have come from Scotland to Canada to Ohio to Wisconsin; I'm not sure about where the family migrated from or where they migrated to."

Notes for Lewis James Hanchett:
Margaret Mae Lane was born in either Ireland or Illinois. Her parents were both born in Ireland. The family was in San Jose, Santa Clara County, California in 1880 where Lewis was listed as a miner. That the daughter, Virginia, was born in Nevada and the son, Lewis, in California places somewhat the family's movements.

In the 1880 Census, Lewis and Margaret were listed as having two Chinise domestic servants - Ah Lem (age 33) and Ah Gong (age 21).

iii. William H. Hanchett, born 24 Jun 1834 in Coldwater, Branch, Michigan; died 19 Nov 1883 in Vermillion Parish, Louisiana; married (1) Juliett Dolson Abt. 1857 in Wisconsin; born 1834 in Michigan; married (2) Elizabeth Agelia Terrier 13 Feb 1866 in Bradshear, St. Mary's Parish, Louisiana; born 1846 in Louisiana; died 03 May 1936 in Port Arthur, Jefferson, Texas.
Notes for William H. Hanchett:
He appeared in the 1860 census with Juliet and two daughters, in Albany, Wisconsin, where he was a miller. In 1870 Juliet was in the census with her two daughters in the family of Gilbert Dolson, age 63, and his wife Ruth, age 48, who were probably her parents, she was listed as having foreign born parents and the Dolsons were born in Canada. However, because of her age, Ruth may have been a step-mother.

The next record of William is his marriage to Elizabeth Agelia Terrier, February 13, 1866 in Bradshear, St. Mary Parish, LA. That this is the same William is established by the application for a widow's pension by Elizabeth Hanchett of Ramsey, Vermillion Parish, LA, 6 May 1891. She stated that she was the widow of William Hanchett who enlisted November 7, 1863 in Company D 1st Regiment Wisconsin Heavy Artillery at Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Further, she asserted that he died in Vermillion, November 19, 1883 and that he had previously married Juliet Dolson from whom he was divorced before their marriage.

Elizabeth's death certificate stated she died at Port Arthur, TX, May 3, 1936, age 90 y. 4 m. 3 d. and that her parents were Edward Lowry Terrier and Adeline Rouseau. Information given by her daughter, Juliet Hartman. William was a farmer.
