By Don Taylor

Photo of Don Taylor with cat Nasi.Samuel was an Immigrant Ancestor[1]. Born in June 1867 in Ireland, he came to the United States in 1883, when he was only 16 years old. Once he turned 21, he became a U.S. citizen. He lived his adult life in Salem, Massachusetts, and died in 1909 at the age of 42. He left behind a wife and eight children 18 years old and younger.

Samuel J Reid is found in 24 Ancestry Public Trees[2] and is Family Search profile LVWZ-5LB

Samuel J Reid (1867-1909) (Events By Date)

Birth

Samuel was born on 28 June 1867 in Stewartstown, County Tyrone, Ireland.[3]

Stewartstown is a small town in what is now Northern Ireland. Life must have been difficult for the young Samuel, who was born between two major potato famines. Certainly, there was significant unrest in Ireland. In 1867 the Orange Order (Protestant) clashed with the Catholics. County Tyrone was one of four counties in Northern Ireland that had a majority of Catholics. Other than his parents’ names, James E Reid and Jane Stewart, I haven’t learned anything about his childhood in Ireland.

Immigration

In 1883, to rid itself of indigent Irish, there was a program to assist poor Irish to leave the country. The Crown would pay a one-way fare to get them to leave. I don’t know if Samuel used that program to emigrate, but after he turned 16 in 1883 and left Ireland for the US about a month later. His ship arrived in Boston on 14 August 1883. Five years later, when he became 21 years old, he became a United States citizen.

Marriage

Samuel married Sarah J Locke, of Arlington, Mass., on 26 June 1880. Samuel was 22, and Sarah was 20. James P. Franks performed the ceremony. James was an Episcopal minister at Grace Church in Salem.

His Death Record indicates he was 41 years, 4 months, 21 days old at his death on 21 November 1909 which suggests a birth date in June 1868.

Because he presumably entered the information on his naturalization record, and because I have not found the image from the Ireland Births and Baptisms, I prefer using 28 June 1867 as his birthdate.

Donna Darling Collection – Part 88

Treasure Chest Thursday
By Don Taylor

This week, for Treasure Chest Tuesday, I look at clippings from a page of the Donna Darling Collection.

Clipping: Plaza – Let’s Go – Donna Darling Collection

“Plaza – Let’s Go” showed the movie “The U. P. Trail” from Zane Grey’s great novel. For Vaudeville, “Donna Montran and Her ‘Bathing Beauties’ is the headliner. This ad doesn’t say when or where the show occurred. However, Donna went by Montran in her Bathing Beauties shows during 1920 and 1921. Along with Donna on the bill were:

  • Billy and Eddie Gorman – Passing Songs of 1920
  • Bo Peep and Jack Horner – Kathlyn Arnold and George L. Cohan.
  • Bart Doyle – Chesterfieldian Entertainer
  • The Great Richards.

It also mentions the show played Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday. And in the margin between two clippings was a handwritten note that said “Worchester Mass.”

Image rotated horizontally for readability.

Analysis

Worchester Evening Gazette 27 Dec 1920 via Genealogy Bank.

My review of available online newspapers found an ad, via Genealogy Bank, from the Worchester Evening Gazette, 27 December 1920, that is almost identical. It advertised “Plaza – Let’s Go” and included the same vaudeville acts. Other newspaper issues and pages indicated that Donna’s show played at the Plaza in Worchester on December 27, 28, & 29, 1920.

That fills a gap I had in her show schedule from her playing at the Palace Theater in Hartford, CT, December 22-25 and playing the Plaza Theater in Bridgeport, CT, between 30 December 1929 and 1 January 1921.

Actions

  • I added the following to her list of shows:

December 27-29, 1924 – “Donna Montran and Her ‘Bathing Beauties’” played Plaza-Let’s Go in Worchester, MA.

  • There are four more clippings from the Donna Darling Collection which relate to this show. Additionally, I found six articles in three newspapers on Genealogy Bank that document the show even more. I will include them in detail when I write about this show in detail.

Happy Birthday Stephen Taft

16 April – Stephen Taft

Roberts-Barnes-Taft Line

Today, I also remember my 6th great-grandfather, Stephen Taft. He was the second ancestor born on 16 April. Stephen was born in 1710 in Uxbridge[1], Province of Massachusetts Bay (Now Worcester County, Massachusetts). Stephen married Mary Lewis on 27 March 1733 in Uxbridge. I believe they had 10 children including my 5th great-grandfather Silas Taft. Stephen died on 3 February 1803 in Uxbridge. (His burial details are unknown.)

For more information on Stephen Taft see:

    • I have not researched Stephen’s life, however, I did write about the Taft surname.]
    • Family Search: 2HK1-NML
    • Find-a-Grave: Stephen Taft
    • My Ancestry Family Tree: Stephen Taft LINK-TO[-INDIVIDUAL-IN-MY-ANCESTRY-TREE]
    • There are so many conflicting trees on Ancestry, I can’t point to any specific set of trees.

There are no known photos, paintings, or drawings of Stephen Taft . If you have an image of Stephen or know more about his life, I would love to hear from you. If he is your ancestor, I would love to share information with you. Please let me know how we are related. Also, like me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or comment at the bottom of this post.

Ancestor Sketch – Annie Smythe

Bradley-Hingston Project
Hingston-Smythe Line
By Don Taylor

Photo of Don Taylor with cat Nasi.Annie Smythe is an immigrant ancestor. She was born in England to Irish parents. She immigrated to the United States, located to Peabody (near Boston), Massachusetts, and married an Irish immigrant. They had six children, including one stillborn. She was widowed at 40 and never remarried. She died at age 50.

Anna (Annie) Smythe is found in 25 Ancestry Public Trees. However, several trees appear to have the wrong husband for her. Family Search has profile KF5Z-LPD for Annie/Anna.

Roberts/Brown – Ancestor #13

List of Grandparents

  • Grandfather: William Robert Hingston (1889-1954)
  • 1st Great-grandmother: Annie Smythe (1859-1912)
  • 2nd Great-grandfather: Robert Smythe (___-___)

Anna/Annie Smythe (1859-1912)

Birth

Annie was born on 2 June 1869 to Robert and Mary (Lyons) Smythe. It is unclear where Annie was born. Some records indicate she was born in England; others indicate Ireland. Because Ireland was part of the “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland” in 1869 and because both of her parents were born in Ireland, I suspect Annie was born in Ireland. Additionally, I can’t find a record for Annie’s birth in England, and (sadly) Irish birth records through their General Records Office aren’t available until 1864.

Immigration – 1881

Annie came to the United States aboard the S.S. Wyoming, out of Liverpool. The Gulon Line ship’s fare was $80 for a cabin and $30 for steerage. The trip took nine days, seven hours. The SS Wyoming was primarily used for the emigrant trade from Liverpool to New York. Emigrants from Ireland and the continent would come to England through various ports and take emigrant trains to Liverpool. The trains consisted of only third-class carriages and wooden seats. It had to have been a difficult trip, particularly alone. Among the more than 900 passengers on the ship, there were 645 Mormons on board that were heading for Salt Lake City. The ship arrived in New York on 13 September 1881[i]; Castle Garden processed the immigrants.

Marriage

Annie Smythe married Freke Hingston on 2 September 1884 in Peabody, Essex County, Massachusetts. Rev. George Walker of Peabody performed the ceremony. It was the first marriage for both bride and groom.

 The six children of Freke W. and Annie (Smyth) Hingston.

Mary Ellen 7 October 1884 Martin Joseph Quinlan July 1969
(No Name) 11 March 1888 n/a Stillborn
William Robert 29 January 1889 Florence Reid 8 February 1954
James Edward 6 July 1890 9 April 1913
Joseph Freke 19 November 1894 16 November 1976
Florence Louise 5 August 1896 FNU Atwood 2 August 1948

All children were born and died in Peabody, MA.

Adulthood

On 2 January 1899, Annie’s husband Freke died of pneumonia, leaving her a widow with five children.

1900 Census

The 1900 Census finds Annie and her five children living in Peabody. She owns her home at 250 Washington Street, although it is mortgaged. She keeps house, but her fifteen-year-old daughter, Mary, is a suspender maker. William, James, and Joseph are all attending school. They have two boarders, Richard Daley and Patrick Driscoll.

1910 Census

The 1910 Census finds Annie and her five children still at 250 Washington Street. Annie is listed as a nurse who has been out of work for 24 weeks. Twenty-four-year-old Mary works in a Bleachery, and William is a machinist at a machine shop. James was a carpenter and had been out of work for 20 weeks. Fifteen-year-old Joseph worked as a bleacher at a bleachery and attended school; little Florence only attended school.

Death/Burial, etc.

Annie (Smythe) Hingston Died on 23 May 1912 at the age of 50 from “fatty degeneration of the heart.” She was buried on 25 May 1912 at Cedar Grove Cemetery In Peabody. She was preceded in death by her husband and one stillborn child. Her other five children survived her.

Photo of Don Taylor with cat Nasi.Freke W Hingston was born on 29 October 1859 in Ireland, the son of Ellen and William. He immigrated to the United States in July 1879. He married Annie Smythe on 2 September 1884 in Peabody, Massachusetts. Freke and Annie had six children in 11 years. He died on 2 January 1899 in Peabody, Massachusetts, and was buried there at the age of 39.

Freke W. Hingston (1859-1899)

Birth

Freke was born in County Cork, Ireland, on 29 October 1859, to William and Ellen (Wolfe) Hingston.

Immigration

The 19-year-old Freke immigrated to the United States, arriving in New York on 15 July 1879. 1879 was the second year of the Irish “Mini-famine” of 1878-1880. In Ireland, the potato harvest was significantly reduced and the peat and cereal crops were too wet to Harvest.[1]

Marriage

Freke married Annie Smyth (or Smith) on 2 September 1884 in Peabody, Essex County, Massachusetts.

The six children of Freke W. and Annie (Smyth) Hingston.

Joseph Freke 19 November 1894 16 November 1976
Florence Louise 5 August 1896 FNU Atwood 2 August 1948

All children were born and died in Peabody, MA.

Adulthood

Freke filed his intention to become a US Citizen in Essex County, MA, on 28 September 1886 and became a citizen on 3 October 1888. He worked as a bleacher.

Death/Burial, etc.

The Massachusetts Death Records indicates he died on 2 January 1899 at 40 years of age, one month, and 17 days, suggesting his birth was either 15 or 16 November 1858. Freke W. Hingston is buried at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Peabody, Massachusetts.

The following names and dates are on his Family Marker:

Birth Name Death Relationship
1858 Freke W. Hingston 1899 Self
1960 Anne S. Hingston 1912 Wife
1890 James E. Hingston 1913 Son
1896 Florance Atwood 1948 Daughter
1879 Martin J Quinlan 1951 Son-in-law
1884 Mary Ellen Quinlan 1969 Daughter
1920 Lawrence M Quinlan 1989 Grandson.

Conflicts

Freke’s marker and his Death Record indicate he was born in 1858. However, his naturalization record indicates his birthdate as 29 October 1859. Because the naturalization records were seen by Freke and signed as accurate by him, I accept the 29 October date as the most accurate.

Further Research

Although Freke arrived in the United States in 1879, I have been unable to find anyone with the Hingston (or Kingston) surname that appears to be Freke in the 1880 Census. When I research his father, hopefully, I will  encounter him and, possibly siblings, in other records.
